Install h5ai – file indexer on Centos 7

H5ai is a modern file indexer for HTTP web servers with focus on your files. Directories are displayed in a appealing way and browsing them is enhanced by different views, a breadcrumb and a tree overview. Initially h5ai was an acronym for HTML5 Apache Index but now it supports other web servers too.

Step 1 – Installing (Requires PHP 5.5+)


Copy folder _h5ai to the document root directory of the web server: DOC_ROOT/_h5ai.

 ├─ _h5ai
 ├─ your files
 └─ and folders

Add /_h5ai/public/inde to http conf file

Apache httpd 2.2/2.4: in httpd.conf or in the root directory’s .htaccess file set for example:

DirectoryIndex  index.html  index.php  /_h5ai/public/index.php

Nginx 1.2: in nginx.conf set for example:

index index.html index.php /_h5ai/public/index.php;

Step 2 – Visit http://YOUR-DOMAIN.TLD/_h5ai/public/index.php, to check if h5ai is reachable.
