I have installed apache-php-mysql on my ununtu 12.10. I kept a directory under /var/www/mydirectory.

There is no index.php in the directory. When I tried to open the directory in browser it is not showing any files or directories in mydirectory.

What changes to be done? (apache is running)

Thank you.

If you want Apache to return a directory listing via HTTP then you'll need to use mod_autoindex module.

Setting that up is outside the scope of this site; there are plenty of instructions around the web. If you do get stuck on a particular part while setting it up, do feel free to ask a new question.
