How to Stop A Directory Index From Being Shown

Sometimes, for one reason or another, you will have no index file in your directory. This will, of course, mean that if someone types the directory name into their browser, a full listing of all the files in that directory will be shown, which could be a security risk for your site. To prevent against this (without creating lots of new 'index' files), you can enter a command into your .htaccess file to stop the directory list from being shown: Options -Indexes.
