If I run SWISH-e with Directory Browsing turned on for the /docs virtual folder, everything indexes as expected.  However we don't want to allow wide open access to browsing those directories.  If add a default document, nobrowse.php to /docs and the each folder below it, indexing fails.  It gets to the nobrowse.php document and stops.  And of course, if I turn Directory Browsing off, indexing fails.

With the directory of docs available to the server doing the indexing, try indexing the directory locally as opposed to crawling it via http.'then use replacerules to fix the path that your end users will get.
