How do I view all files in a domain?

Discussion in 'Site & Server Administration' started by cscott5288, Dec 24, 2009.

    I want to know how I view all files in a given domain.

    when you access a website you are typically taken to the homepage which is something like a index.html or home.html or home.html. Well what if there are files and folders in the root directory (right after public_html) that you want to access? If I want to access a file called test.txt via web browser and that file is in the same directory as home.html, is there any way I can know that it exists other than by typing the full domain followed by "/text.txt"?

    I have always wondered this.

    you can configure the web-server to not to automatically show index.htm/php file and also enable the directory listing

    in that way you will be able to see all the files that exist under that directory at the server

    here is an example http://www.fusionroom.co.nz/files/gimgs/

    Why do you need to check for someone's website?

    I doubt if it is possible but I am not 100% sure.
