Top 5 PHP replacements for Apache default directory listing

You all know the default Apache directory listing .. and I bet most of you hate it. It does the job, sure, but it’s not exactly the most useful (or the best looking).

This is why you might want to use a more professional script if you want to show some files/directories.

1. phpFe – PHP File explorer

It might not be the best looking, but it sure does its job .. and quite well I might add. It also has an admin module with basic functions. This is pretty much the only script that also takes SEO into consideration.

2. fileNice

It has basic functions, a bit of AJAX to make it very fast, supports different skins and overall pretty nice to use as well.

3. AutoIndex

This little script is a very good choice if you want to make a download page since it supports password protect, anti-leech features, bandwidth limiting, logging and other cool stuff … but of course this does comes with a price – the server footprint is much larger.

4. QuiXplorer

This script is designed for admin use only since it has edit/delete options but no password protection so be careful where you use it.

5. GaMerZ File Explorer

Small, simple, easy to use … but of course don’t expect it to have many features, just the right tool when you’re in a hurry.

  1. QuiXplorer suits me well – it has some extra options like change permission, delete, secure access…

  2. Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
