I'm assuming you mean for a webserver?
You'll need to edit the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf , assuming you're using
Apache (if not I can't help you and the rest is irrelevant)
For each main directory that holds webserver files you'll find a section
and ending with
In between are the options for that directory and ALL it's subdirectories,
unless those are defined again elsewhere in the configuration or in
a .htaccess file.
You'll need to add the "Indexes" Option to the directory section.
However this is a bad thing security-wise, PLEASE read the Apache
documentation and try to set up a small separate section, or use
a .htaccess file to set the needed options.
