Disabling Directory Listing on Oracle iPlanet Web Server Does Not Affect URIs Proxied by the WebLogic Server Proxy Plugin (Doc ID 1545975.1)

Last updated on APRIL 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle iPlanet Web Server - Version 6.1 to 7.0 [Release 6.1 to 7.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

It is common to configure Oracle iPlanet Web Server 6.1 or 7.0 to disallow directory listing of directories that do not contain a defined default html page such as index.html, home.html, etc. However, after following the instructions provided in <Document 1192870.1> (How to Disable to Listing of a Directory's Contents in Oracle iPlanet Web Server), URIs serviced via proxy by the WebLogic Reverse Proxy Plugin do not necessarily have directory listing disabled.
