Hi Maurice,

It can be configured through the GUI:

"Network Settings" / "Web". Then "Options" and untick the box for "Indexes".

> I think it is better to not allow it, it gives a slightly bit more safety.

Correct. On the other hand: By default we don't create websites with no index 
page in it. So if someone creates an empty directory and puts no index page 
into it, do we cover up his mistake by simply denying directory listing, or 
are we fighting what the user intends to do? This is a somewhat tricky 
territory.
