How can I change the page that Apache shows when someone navigates to a directory that does not have the index page? I would like to change that page to not be so easy to view all files in a directory.
How can I do this without having to put an index page in each directory?

Add Options -Indexes into your httpd.conf or appropriate .htaccess file.
