Default Nginx on OpenBsd

I am not sure this is the best place for this topic, so if it gets moved , no problem.

Using Nginx, on a server powered with OpenBsd, and I read in the documentation,
for better security, by default it does not show the contents of a directory like this:
(Apache) for example: http://rockyandtheparrots.org/images/
I would like to do the same on Nginx, but only for the directory I specify, hoping
that makes sense.
At this time for example I get : http://www.parrotsandopenbsd.org/images/

Thank you

Darn, I just did this recently on FreeBSD, but I believe it's platform agnostic.

In your nginx configuration file, set autoindex to on.

There may also be a size directive. I used autoindex_exact_size off;

But I'm not sure if that's necessary.

Code:
