  • Is there an .htaccess file inside the directory or does an entry for this directory exist in your Apache httpd configuration (see httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#directory)? – joschi May 2 '10 at 14:05
  • @joschi, yeah. I've enabled viewing of hidden files in filemanager but it won't show .htaccess file there O_o. So I removed it directly from console and the folder is shown now. Please, reply on my question I'll mark your asnwer. – Max Frai May 2 '10 at 14:25

Apache httpd usually won't show directories or files which require any sort of authentication (e. g. through Basic Authentication) or are only allowed to be accessed from certain IP addresses or subnets. This is a "feature" to prevent information disclosure.
