http_random_index module

http_random_index module#

The module processes requests ending with the slash character (/) and picks a random file in a directory to serve as an index file. The module is processed before the http_index module.

When building from the source code, this module isn’t built by default; it should be enabled with the ‑‑with‑http_random_index_module build option.

In packages from our repositories, the module is included in the build.
