"You don't have permission to access..." issue

Postby redcameron » 15. November 2008 16:53

Hi there,

I just installed XAMPP for the first time (great product, btw), I modified the httpd.conf to a path in my c drive at C:\Projects\ but whenever I try accessing files in the browser at http://localhost I get this msg:

Access forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 403
localhost
11/15/08 10:43:40
Apache/2.2.9 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.8i mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.2.6

I tried searching the error on Google + the forum but didn't seem to find anything useful.

I'm on Vista btw.

The document root...lol sorry. That's the only thing I modified. I accidentally modified the ServerRoot at first thinking it was DocRoot, but I fixed that.

Oops if I wasn't clear, I'm still experiencing the issue. What I was getting at is that I had modified ServerRoot first, it broke, I fixed it and changed DocRoot and now I get perm issues. :-/

You must also change the Directory block for the DocumentRoot.
