Software :: Apache - Make Aliases To Folders Outside Of Main Document Root - Access Forbidden

Jun 9, 2009

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].

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..

General :: Apache Won't Redirect To New Document Root

Jun 20, 2011

I've set my document root directory in httpd.conf to the directory I want to serve files out of, and set Options to Indexes FollowSymLinks; I've saved the configuration file and restarted apache, yet when I direct my browser to the domain name that's seated there, I can't get at my index.html which exists there. It serves index.html when it exists in the natural document root.

Software :: Apache Document Root Conflict

May 21, 2009

I have a VPS (Mosso Cloud Server) that is administered and monitored by Platinum Server Mgmt. I have CentOS 5 and Apache 2.2 installed.I requested that my Document Root be set to /var/www/ and also a subdomain setup to /var/www/

They responded by telling me that it would, "[This would] cause a problem with the permissions and that it will be a permissions conflict if you set them to /var/www/. For security and compatibility purposes, they should be in /home/username/.... It can be put anywhere in there."

This is the first time I've been involved with any server administration, but while coding on numerous private vps's before, they had a setup similar to what I was requesting.Am I incorrect in my understanding of the previous situations and the Mgmt company is in fact correct?

Ubuntu :: 403 Error After Changing Apache Document Root

Sep 19, 2010

I've had apache installed for a couple of years with no problem but this morning I thought I would change the apache document root to my secondary disk so that my WAMP setup in my Windows partition and LAMP could share the same files. I've edited the etc/apache2/sites-available file to point it to the new location of my document root but I am getting a 403 - forbidden "You don't have permission to access / on this server." error when I try to load files through the browser. I'm not sure if this is a permissions issue or the way I've edited the sites-available config.

Here is the new sites available config:
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
DocumentRoot /media/Data/webroot
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None .....

General :: Apache Virtual Host Document Root ?

Sep 9, 2009

I'm now configuring my web server to server different Virtual Hosts based on DNS name. Right now I store my files in /var/www per the default installation settings in Apache.

I want to change the Document Root to /home/username/public_html/ for the second virtual server. What do the permissions need to be in order for Apache to read the files in this location? Would it be best to force Apache to run as this new username instead of www-data?

My Virtual host setup will look something like this

I want to change the DocumentRoot as I am running a chrooted ProFTPd server and want to be able to update webserver files via FTP. I am running Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Server (CLI only).

Ubuntu Servers :: Webdav + Nautilus = Forbidden - DON'T Have "Options Indexes" In Apache Config File When Try To Access Via Firefox

Feb 20, 2010

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 have configured apache on my Centos 5.2 and it is working well. I want to have a sym link of my docs directory in /root/ in the apache root directory. I used ln -s command to create this sym link. But when I tried to access this I get the following error:

You don't have permission to access /docs on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

How can I access this directory in apache. i use apache 2.0.63.

Fedora :: Php Apache Superglobals 403 Forbidden?

Jan 3, 2010

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.

works: ('index.php?person=fedora')
echo 'Hello ' . $_GET['person'] . '!';
403 forbidden: ('index.php?name=fedora')


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.

Fedora :: F11 Apache 403 Forbidden Using Alias Directory?

Nov 20, 2009

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):

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks

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

Ubuntu Servers :: FTP And Apache - Page Forbidden

May 7, 2011

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:
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)

Fedora Servers :: Apache 403 Forbidden Error On Symlinks

Aug 12, 2011

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.

Ubuntu :: Apache & Group Permissions - 403 Forbidden Error

Nov 12, 2010

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.

Slackware :: Getting Aliases To Work As Root?

Aug 22, 2010

How can I get aliases working as root? Here is my Slackware 13.1's /etc/profile file followed by my *Slackware 11's* /etc/profile file [as a comparison]. My Slackware 11's root aliases work in addition to my username ones *without* needing a separate .bashrc in my home dir. In S13.1 I have created a .bashrc for my username and it works fine, but I want those same aliases operating when I'm root, and cannot for the life of me figure how to achieve it.

S13.1 /etc/profile:
# /etc/profile: This file contains system-wide defaults used by
# all Bourne (and related) shells.
# Set the values for some environment variables:
export MINICOM="-c on"
export MANPATH=/usr/local/man:/usr/man
export HOSTNAME="`cat /etc/HOSTNAME`"
export LESSOPEN="| %s"
export LESS="-M"
# If the user doesn't have a .inputrc, use the one in /etc.....

OpenSUSE :: Bash Aliases For Root - Where They Are Defined

Sep 26, 2010

Output of my #alias command looks just as normal as one would expect:
alias +='pushd .'
alias -='popd'
alias ..='cd ..'
alias ...='cd ../..' .....

And still whenever I (as root) type in bash
which would be short for
#ls- l
i get output of the command
#ls -al

So where aliases for root overwritten? Usually I would expect .bashrc in the /root directory. Or at least .alias file. But there none of those in my current /root. So, my question is where root user gets it's aliases from? This concerns only root user. Normal user has .bashrc and I made up my own aliases in .alias and that's works jut fine. And yes I could make .bashrc file in the /root and .aliases where I would define my own things.

OpenSUSE Network :: Root User Has Access To Remote Folders/files Of Any User?

Jan 21, 2010

Prelude: OpenSUSE 11.2 (, installed Novell client 2.0 SP2 (novell-client-2.0-sp2-sle11-i586.iso).

I found that if any usual user is logged into a NDS-tree, then _local_ root has full access to user's network shares, including the user's home directory located on remote Netware-server. Is it by design or
have I missed something? Nevertheless in windows local admin has no access to network resources mounted of any other user. If you runas shell (as admin) then admin in principle can't "see" network shares which were mounted (connected) by other users - they are accessible ("visible") per session.

Ubuntu Servers :: Apache2 Change Root Forbidden 403?

Aug 13, 2010

Long story Short, I had to reinstall 9.10 (after a failed 10.04 upgrade) and therefore fresh install of everything.

I installed Apache2 as per [URL] and all works fine.

Changing the root in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default to a folder in my home directory /home/user/subfldr1/www results in a forbidden 403 error.

I've tried changing group owner, given 777 permissions, read and tried all sorts of solutions, but nothing seems to be working.
