ServerAlias http://www.raucholz.com
ErrorLog /home/keith/WWW/raucholz.com/logs/error.log

OK -

I have a couple questions:

A. - what was the URL you used in your browser?

B. - what user/group are owners of /home/keith/WWW/raucholz.com?

Good luck

Username is Keith
In browser URL I type either pc ip address or raucholz.com. Either address results in same - error 403.

I run xamp on fedora Linux and web site directory is in my "/home/Keith/www/raucholz.com directory"

Thank you

One question, and a suggested change:

A. - "WHY" would you enter the PC's IP address ???? Are we missing part of the picture???? Are you not working on the console? Did you make hosts file entries, or use a nameserver?

B. - Try making the owner of the "/home/Keith/www/raucholz.com" directory nobody:root

Code: Select all
chown -R nobody:root /home/Keith/www/raucholz.com


Let's try answering the first question, and make the ownership change before we tackle what may or may not be right with the vhosts entries.

Good Luck

Resolution to Problem...

As you can see the /home/myusername folder has rw, r , r. You need to give "x" to that folder and the /home folder

chmod o+x /home
chmod o+x /home/myusername

glad you found it -

I'll have to add that to my 'Linux fixes for XAMPP'.

Good Luck
