To configure directory browsing for subdirectories

Directory browsing allows a subdirectory of your web site to display a list of the files it contains when users access it with a web browser. You can enable directory browsing at the site root level or at the subdirectory level. If configured at the site root level, directory browsing applies to all subdirectories in the web site.

  1. From the Services Manager menu bar, click Services > Windows Web Hosting > IIS Site Manager.
  2. In the Web Site pane, select the Web application you want to configure.
  3. On the Settings tab, under Application Settings, select the Directory Browsing check box.
  4. Click Update to save your selection.
