CentOS 5 :: Apache Error 403 - "Forbidden You Don't Have Permission To Access /bb/ On This Server" - 5.2 With Apache 2.2.3
Jan 20, 2011
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..
drwxrwxrwx 2 root root 1368064 Mar 10 18:28 monitor drwxrwxrwx 7 root root 12288 Feb 18 17:07 monitorDONE
I have created one short cut link for this folder with below command :
ln -s monitorDONE recordings lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 11 Mar 13 14:30 recordings -> monitorDONE This link is under /var/www/html Now, when I do IP/recordings It show me an Error as Forbidden You don't have permission to access /recordings on this server.
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.
I don't mind that apache logs "rotate". By that, I mean that periodically the most recent log is renamed "*.1" and the older logs are bumped up a number In my particular situation, I do mind that the log that was "*.4" is deleted rather than being renamed to "*.5" when that periodic renaming happens.
I know most of the other /var/log files have the same behavior. What does this? Can I change it so my apache logs are "rotated" up but aren't deleted? I know this will take some hard drive space, but I have a lot of it.
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.
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.
I am on mac os x and whenever I make aliases in my apache config file to point to folders outside of main web document root folder, I get access forbidden. I have chmod -R 777 the whole destination directory (to test it) and still no go. Access forbidden. I have also tried pointing directly to [URL].
Have no idea what I am doing operating a server. Our programmer got a new job and I am the one who has to take it over. Everything was fine til yesterday. You see I made a control panel to easier update the site www(dot)discoverysound(dot)com
but yesterday when I went to update the site I got an error called fopen. I thought I fixed it (and boy did I ever) but now I cannot get to my site because it says Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. Apache/2.0.47 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.47 OpenSSL/0.9.7a DAV/2 PHP/4.3.3RC4-dev Server at www(dot)discoverysound(dot)comPort 80.
I am trying to solve a problem where Apache stats aren't displaying correctly in Munin. I've ran through quite a bit of checks and tests regarding Munin setup, but I think my issue is related to Apache, but my skill set there is lacking.
first, system info: monitored server: CentOS 5.3 2.6.18-128.1.1.el5
We have Apache installed on CentOS 5.3 in our laboratory. Indeed the server is running fine for almost two years since it is actually the first CentOS 5 that was released just regularly updated. Now, most of our applications are custom made PHP applications and until now we somehow managed to avoid using PHP to fetch files that are on the internet itself. But now we are desperate because we need to allow PHP to fetch files through Apache but it seems as if Apache is not allowed to make a connection to the outer world. Additionally we use a proxy server to connect to the outer world so right at the beginning http_proxy is used to set that environmental variable. And for the root user it all works fine after that but it seems as if the apache user is not allowed to access the internet. Just to make a remark our web server can be accessed from the outer world so its a one way street for now.
I was unable to access my dedicated server for few minutes. I have checked the apache error logs and found below notice: [notice] caught SIGTERM, shutting down I have tried to search from Google but could not find much information about this error.
i'm setting up apache on 5.3. i can access the apache test page without a problem from the server via URL... But i can't figure out how to access this page from another computer within the domain (for when i upload my home page.
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've just upgraded my laptop to Fedora 14 and installed LAMP on it for a test environment. I've followed the official instructions to install but seem to have a problem that I didn't have on F13 or Opensuse. Each time I try to access index.php on localhost I get a permission denied message and an SElinux alert. I have tried 7 different solutions on various forums and just can't view anything in a browser.
/var/www/html has been set to chmod 777 /var/www/html/index.php has also been set to chmod 777
A standard user can definitely read and write to the above files/folder. Until I commented it out the Welcome/Test page was working perfectly.
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):
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)
I recently started using SVN with Apache for my web development, although I find it really annoying that I have to issue two SVN commands (one local, one remote) to update my web site. I have been looking into SVN post-commit hooks to solve this problem. The only problem is that apache does not have permission to modify files in my user directory... So here is how everything is setup. I am running Slackware 13 full install. There have been no installations overriding any of the default installs.
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 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.

I am upgrading my server and I have a lot of sites. Since I cannot take my server down for a few days, maybe a week until I manage to migrate all the sites to the new machine, I figured I could migrate them one by one. After migrating one, I would somehow tunnel the requests of that name virtual host to my internal machine. When everything is migrated, I would then switch the machines, update ip's and stuff and everything will work just fine.
However I cannot seem to find a way to do this tunneling. is this at all possible? If not, what alternatives do I have?
I am getting this error whenever I access the page:
Code: PHP Warning: fgets(): supplied argument is not a valid stream resource Any idea whats all about? I explored and found it permission issue. I want to put a user call paul in apache group.Any idea how can I do that?
