This is Apaxy.

Apaxy example

Apaxy is a customisable theme built to enhance the experience of browsing web directories. It uses the mod_autoindex Apache module—and some CSS—to override the default style of a directory listing.

Apaxy may be basic, but it gives you a great deal of creative freedom when styling your directory.

!Sadly, visual style is all you can work with. It's not possible to alter the generated table structure of the listing directory with Apaxy.


Apaxy requires an Apache(2.2.11+) enabled HTTP server.

Let's assume you have a folder named share in your server root directory (the path thus being http://mywebsite.com/share) that you'd like to use as your listing directory:

AddIcon /{FOLDERNAME}/theme/icons/gif.png .gif

Should be changed to…

AddIcon /share/theme/icons/gif.png .gif

That's all there is to it. Your /share folder—and any of its subdirectories—will no longer be hideous.
