WAMP Auto Index - Fix missing icons

Posted by Ben Johnson on 4 April 2012 | 7 Comments


When enabling the auto index on WAMP you will need to make a small cahnge to the apache: httpd-autoindex.conf

This can be found (apending on your version) here: c:\wamp\bin\apache\Apache2.2.17\conf\extra\httpd-autoindex.conf


Alias /icons/ "/apache/icons/"

<Directory "/apache/icons/">

Replace: "/apache/icons/" with the absolute path to your Apache Icons directory. E.g: C:/wamp/bin/apache/Apache2.2.21/icons/

Restart APACHE.


You need to make sure that you use FORWARD SLASH not BACK SLASH if you are copy/paste from windows.

  • The study of different subjects and fields of education are very necessary for the study of full array of concepts. The research work of different fields of life is very necessary. The students become authors of their own scripts.

  • I have the same question as Ajay ... I don't know when/why the icons stopped working, but I followed this advice and got them back. But the font is also different than it used to be. How/where do I change that? Thanks for the post!
