Fedora Servers :: Apache Hosting User Public HTML - Forbidden 403
May 6, 2009
I have apache working,i have users set under admin group in /home/admin/username/html that is with an html publicfolder at the end, now permissions are set right, /html is set to mode 777, and the contents also inside them. But everytime i do a 10.0.11.25/~les i get a damn forbidden error code, its got me so pissed off and i dont' know whats the problem. This is the error i get: Forbidden 403 You don't have permission to access /~les on this server.

the hard drive on my web server died so I replaced it and installed Fedora 15. I have been installing the OS on a small drive and then mounting other drive(s) for storage and did the same thing here. The problem is that I cannot get Apache to follow symlinks. Apache is partially working, it will serve my index.html page in the web page root directory and I made another directory called webtest and put some files in, and that worked fine. I made a symlink from the root directory to a folder on the mounted drive but when I try to access it, it gives me the old 403 Forbidden error. I also made a similar link in the webtest directory, I can view the other files in that directory but it does not show the link - also, trying to force it by typing the full path in the browser gives the same 403 error.
I have checked the permissions and SELinux types (using ls -Z) and they seem to be fine and I cannot find any .htaccess files. All the files on the mounted drive are owned by www:www but I also tried setting the user and group to www in httpd.conf and it still gave the same issue, so I changed them back to apache. I've been reading posts and sites on this for hours now and I'm still lost. I can post results of log files if they are of any use, I just wasn't sure what to post because it is somewhat working.
I'm pretty new to Debian, and I'm trying to set up Apache 2, and I want to set the DocumentRoot to public_html in my home dir, but I run into some problems.
I tried to change this (/etc/apache2/sites-available/default): <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost DocumentRoot /var/www/ <Directory /> Options FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None .....
When I restart apache I get a 403 error, and when I change it back to its original, it works fine. I want to change the DocumentRoot so I can upload files via FTP to ~/public_html. ~/public_html has the mode 777.
My setup is two laptops connected by crossover cable. One runs Windows xp the other Fedora 13. Neither is connected to internet. I'm using a subnet of 192.168.1.x On Fedora eth0 is up, apache runs because it creates pidfile. Everything pings fine. Windows xp ip pings fine from command line. Gave Windows xp a static ip of 192.168.1.1 mask 255.255.255.0 and gateway 1.2, same as eth0. xp says it sees the server. eth0 is up.
DirectoryIndex looks at index.html. I created that file with very simple code and put it in document root. Document root permissions are 755. Access_log 770. Error_log 644. Apache User 755. Listen 80 When I type the ip for eth0 (192.168.1.2) into firefox, firefox gives me an error message - can't find server. The connection status says its connected.
The error log includes a line: [warn]./mod_dnssd.c:No services found to register I don't know what this means. Apache is not writing to access_log. When I cat the path to access_log I get nothing, then a command prompt. I'm looking for the part I'm missing that will let Apache serve that index.html file to firefox so I can see how my code looks to firefox as I go.
I am using the Desktop Version of Ubuntu Lucid Lynx, but I am posting here because I think all of you server guru's can help me. I am setting up my desktop as a mobile development server. I am hoping to eventually have it work with an intranet. Anyways I am trying to configure this and I hit a snag.
I have a 403 forbidden error. I've read around and I thought it might have something to do with SELinux
Since I upgraded to 11.04 on my Server edition I have been experiencing some problems with my FTP-server and Apache. Apache just says that the page is "forbidden" if I'm not logged in on the server, which means I need to go to the server and physically log in or I can do it trough ssh but then when I close my ssh client on my work computer the page is "forbidden" again. And I cant seem to reach the FTP-server from an external address so I need to be in the network to access it.
It says something like: Code: An error occurred opening that folder on the FTP Server. Make sure you have permission to access that folder. 200 Switching to ASCII mode. 227 Entering Passive Mode (192,168,0,194,233,166)
With F11 installed Apache is having permissions issues reading files out of the html directory. Only wants to work with permissions set to read for other. [Thu Jun 11 23:25:28 2009] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] (13)Permission denied: file permissions deny server access: /var/www/html/index.html Tracked down the permissions issue. Is there a good reason not to change the group to apache and remove world read?
I am trying to get an internal webserver running and I am having issues with php. When I make a file (index.php) it runs perfectly. I can use PHP superglobals for the most part but the minute I use 'name' (ex: 'index.php?name=someone') I get a 403 forbidden. I thought for a while that it was something with all superglobals but if i change the code to use another variable it works fine.
I have no idea if this is a apache issue, a php issue or something else random. I disabled SElinix in attempts to fix this, changed the owner and group to me and root and nothing seemed to have any effect. I also checked the document permissions in the httpd.conf and they all look correct.
I have searched the forum high and low for the solution with no success, so I will now post this problem, with all known facts. Linux (and Fedora) is brand new to me so I'm somewhat illiterate with the language and recommendations from reading other threads. Please bare with me. I'm reading the book Beginning PHP and MySQL from Novice to Professional by Cristian Darie.The book has you create an Alias directory for creating the tshirtshop web-based application.
The book uses the directory /home/username/tshirtshop. However, I did not want this in the /home directory, so I created a new directory from the root directory /workspace/tshirtshop. Below are the areas of interest in the file httpd.conf (I restarted the httpd service each time I edited this file):
Code: include virtual="test.txt" I have tried following the advice in this thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1510098 but it makes no difference. The file is there, but the line is delivered to the browser as-is. Using Lucid and a new install of apache 2.2 from the repository.
I have FC10 newly installed, and Apache is serving content from /var/www/ okay.
I'm trying to get Apache to serve web content from user's home directories. This is what I've tried with no success:
Uncommented 'UserDir public_htm' in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and commented out 'UserDir disabled'.
Uncommented user directory section in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. It now reads as follows: # # Control access to UserDir directories. The following is an example # for a site where these directories are restricted to read-only. #
I also tried setenforce 0 to temporarily disable SELinux until the next reboot. No luck. It doesn't appear to be an SELinux issue.
That's as far as the information available will take me. I still get URL 'Not Found' when I try to access http://192.168.0.2/~myusername/
Today, the power was suddenly cut off in my house, then my home Ubuntu Server restarted after the power on, but when I use my laptop to view my wesite, the index.html suddenly became blank page, I did clear the firefox cache, doesn't work, still blank, and I changed browser, to seamonkey, the index.html still was blank, so, I am sure that the problem is coused by the server, and then, I put the index.html file to a subdirectory, which under the /var/www/home/index.html, and then I put the address < [url] > ,then,I can view my website the main page index.html.
I've installed webdav on my server and I can access it fine through cadaver. However, when I try to access it via nautilus, I get Forbidden. It is NOT secured (SSL). When I try to access it via firefox, I get an error since I DO NOT have "Options Indexes" in my apache config file. If I add this option in, then I can browse the root direction and webdav folder via firefox, but still not from nautilus. what other information you need. I've googled and searched the forums for awhile, but not "solutions" I found have worked for me. I want the webdav folder to just be a single folder within the direction, so this is how I have my config file setup:
As a side-note...when I included "Option Indexes", it allowed me to view the passwd.dav file from firefox!That doesn't seem very good...
I want to enable User Directories in Apache. So in httpd.conf I set:
Code: <IfModule mod_userdir.c> #UserDir enabled // commented out UserDir public_html </IfModule> Directory /home/kees is listed has the following file permissions: drwx--x--x 32 kees kees Directory /home/kees/public_html has the following file permissions: drwxr-xr-x 2 root root
Directory public_html has two files: index.html and index.php, both with file permissions: -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root If I now try to open http://myhost/~kees/index.html (or index.php) in my browser I get a 403 Forbidden error. If I look in my error log I see the following messages if I first try to open the index.html and then the index.php file:
Basicly just installed a fresh version of Cent OS 5.4 with apache httpd installed automaticly during the installation. The http daemon is running and when navigating to localhost i get the welcome cent os apache page thingy. The problem is when i put an index.html file in /var/http/www then try and navigation to localhost I get a 403 forbidden error.
before i using fedora 14, i was used fedora 8.... no problem in setting web server, all client (windows XP) can access my resources in var/www/html/index.html but after upgrade to fedora 14.... this is a problem
"forbidden you don't have permission to access.... apache/2.2.16 (Fedora) server at 192.168.1.1 port 80" i had disable firewall also set SELinux to permissive
I have a web server set up, and for a while I just let it show the default "test" page, but now I am wanting to actually show something of my own.
I downloaded a couple templates from the internet (free ones), and copied the first one to the /var/www/html folder (including subfolders for ./images and such), and it used an index.php file, but when viewing in my browser, it showed the actual text of the file, not the graphics and images and stuff.
So I deleted those files and "installed" the second template, which uses an index.html file instead.
I am once again getting the default "Apache is running but not configured" page again, even though I have verified multiple times that the index.html file is located in /var/www/html
if I include the index.html file in the path to my website, I get a 403 Forbidden, so I'm thinking it has to do with file ownership or permissions.
I placed the files there as "root", and have tried several combinations of possible permissions (root:root is the owner:group) without any luck.
I am installing Big Brother on a CentOS 5.2 running the default Apache 2.2.3. When I try to access any web page I get the following error: Forbidden You don't have permission to access /bb/ on this server. Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at fmsubbnix Port 80 So far I have:
1) Set the Directory options to FollowSymLinks 2) Verified all directory and file permissions are at 755 3) Set permissions temporarily to 777 and received same error so I am assuming the issue is in a config file somewhere 4) in hhtpd.conf verified <Files ~ "^.ht"> is correct 5) verified the "default" directory is correct (/var/www/html)
I have read and tried several ideas in posts listed on the web but to no avail and am at a loss as to what to look for next..
I am running a few virtual domains on Apache/Fedora 9. I have some domains working fine but when I tried to put up another one today I get "Directory index forbidden by Options directiveL : /home/jek/www/AAA/" Now here's the weird part. That message appeas in the error log for domain AAA, whereas the new domain is BBB and has it's own log files defined in httpd.conf. On the browser the Fedora test page is displayed. SELinux is turned off.
I am running vsftpd-2.2.2-3 on my Fedora 12 box. This box has multiple IPs. What I am looking for is make vsftpd listen on those multiple IPs and when a user FTPs to a certain IP, they get landed to the home directory that has been configured for the IP.
This feature is there in Proftpd and is called virtual hosting. I tried to find for Vsftpd such feature, but couldn't find out exactly how to implement in it. how to implement virtual hosting in Vsftpd?
this costed me a whole day of trying and retrying. I set up a small home server with apache, php, and mysql.
System infos: Linux 2.6.31-22-generic-pae Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Server edition Apache/2.2.12 (Ubuntu)
Until now, it served happily a couple of sites, with no problems. But now, I wanted to set up my ftp server to point to the same directory as one of the sites, for me to be able to upload and manage files via ftp. As a server I normally use proftpd. With my usual config, proftpd runs with its own user and simulates the user ftpuser:ftpgroup when creating files. So I just changed all the files to be owned by this user and group. Permissions set to 770.
Everything works fine, and I'm able to access the data via ftp. BUT, when I try to browse my site the usual way (i.e. point firefox to its address) a 403 forbidden error is issued. Of course, you will say: you didn't allow access to apache. Well, I remembered that right away, and added the user www-data to the ftpgroup user. Now I espect apache to be able to read and serve the files.
Still same problem. 403. The apache error log is full with "permission denied" errors. After many attempts, I logged in as the user www-data, and tested access to the files. This way I'm able to cd into the directory, and read-write the files with nano. As a test, I tryed the other way around. Setting www-data:www-data as the owner of the files, and adding the ftpuser to the www-data group. This way apache works, but proftpd does not. Most probably it has something to do with a misunderstanding of groups permissions or the way this two deamons access the files.
If any of you have successfully created a video hosting server with Fedora, can you give me any ideas of what software to get and how to configure it and so on? Or, if you have been unsuccessful, can you tell me what doen't work?
When we run php scripts that move/rename/etc files, the script does not have access to write to files in our web root. Changing permissions to 777 fixes the problem, but obviously this is not an option..I've been reading up about suexec, phpsuexec, and suphp, but we can't seem to figure any of this out.In phpinfo(),the Server API reads: Server API Apache 2.0 Handlerbut on another server (where everything works, it reads : Server API CGI/FastCGIIs there ANY way to achieve this?
I'm configuring Apache for the first time on this box (8.04 LTS) and Apache2 for the first time ever. "Out of the box" it runs fine and I get the "It Works" page okay. But I'd like to use the virtual site feature to direct Apache to a folder in my user space, and I keep getting errors.
When I point a browser at localhost, the 404 message is "The requested URL / was not found on this server." and the /var/log/apache2/error.log ends with "File does not exist: /htdocs.
Here's my config file from the apache2/sites-available folder:
I diff'ed this file with the default and the only differences are in the DocumentRoot line and the <Directory ...> line.
My public_html folder has permissions 755 and the index.html file is 644.
