Here is a bit of the structure, the htaccess file has the options -indexes
/public_html/media5/ (Forbidden when accessed)
/public_html/media1/ (Shows all the files in its directory)
I've even tried adding an htaccess with "options -indexes" only in it in the media1 folder like so:
Still lists the files.
*It looks like this folder got er, corrupted would be best word, when doing a cpanel transfer long ago. I had to CHOWN it a while ago to allow me to properly give the cpanel user permissions to it.
