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

[code16680aa4795]Options Indexes[/code16680aa4795]

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.
