For the Easy File Listing issue it was the directory path. the folder /DATA was typed in all caps on the server and on in the plug-in. I then reinstalled the plugin to see how it was originally because it worked until the path was changed (or at least i thought that was the issue) and i noticed everything was lowercase. so i changed DATA to data as the folder title and in the plugin path, tested it, and then it worked. It just doesn’t like caps.
