I've got a site that is hosted w/ Godaddy, and I just want to upload a bunch of .docurl==http://=http:///url or .pdfurl==http://=http:///url files so people can download them from the web, but I don't feel like putting a hmtl page together to link to them. How can I make it so that directory stops showing me a 404 error and just displays the list of files???
I think you will need to put an .htaccessurl==http://=http:///url file in the directory where you are sharing your files.
Assuming your host will allow overrides, it's probably a setting in your cPanel (or whatever admin tool GoDaddy uses).
If they allow overrides, but don't give you a setting in your admin panel, you can create a .htaccessurl==http://=http:///url file and upload it to the desired folder. The .htaccessurl==http://=http:///url file should contain the following line
You could create this locally and FTP to the server if you don't have shell access on the host. Note that in the off chance this folder already had a .htaccessurl==http://=http:///url file, then you'd want to the add the "Indexes" option to any existing Options line.
Thanks to both of you...it works now )
