cPanel Indexes Interface

The Indexes interface in your cPanel control panel lets you customize the way your directories on the server will be viewed on the web.

Accessing the Indexes interface

Login to your cPanel control panel using your web browser. Go to 'http://www.yourdomain.com/cpanel/' (without the quotation marks). So if your domain name is 'example.com' you should go to 'http://www.example.com/cpanel/' to login to your control panel. The Indexes interface is in the "Advanced" tab, simply click on the name or the icon to enter.
