Hi @SirReaper So you’re just using the builtin feature of Apache for directory listing? Meaning, you’re not running some application like WordPress/etc. Then you can use the .htpasswd to put restrictions on the directories you want. There’s a little tutorial for using .htaccess in conjuction with .htpasswd: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-use-the-htaccess-file
