If you want to use the IBM Domino Webserver to offer a few files for download from the file system and not a database, you will face the issue that Domino does not allow "Directory Browsing" by default.


This would force you to either create a new index file or similar, every time you add or remove a file or send an explicit list of files to the person that should download the files.

Fortunately, there is an .INI parameter for that! Add
HTTPTurnOnDirectoryBrowsing=YES

to your notes.ini, Server Configuration Document or directly to the server console via "set config", restart the webserver and voila, directory browsing is enabled:



Be aware, that is a server wide setting and applies to all Web Sites/Virtual hosts/... and may cause severe security issues!
