Error 403 Access Forbidden

Hi to all the Apache Friends. I am having a problem with cgi-bin settings. I am running OpenSUSE 12.2 and am using XAMPP 1.8.0. I want to change the cgi-bin Directory settings in the httpd.conf folder but the moment I do that and restart the apache server, I get the error 403 access forbiden message where it was not giving this message until I made a change to the cgi-bin settings section. Here is what I changed:

<IfModule cgid_module>
# ScriptSock: On threaded servers, designate the path to the UNIX
# socket used to communicate with the CGI daemon of mod_cgid.
#Scriptsock logs/cgisock

# "/opt/lampp/cgi-bin" should be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased
# CGI directory exists, if you have that configured.
<Directory "/opt/lampp/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Options ExecCGI
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Which was:

<Directory "/opt/lampp/cgi-bin">
AllowOverride None
Require all denied

I have uninstalled and reinstalled fresh the XAMPP installation and tried changing this setting, and over and over this problem reoccurs. What is the problem and what am I doing wrong?

Please find the link to my httpd.conf file:

Please can anyone shed some light on this matter for me.

Kind regards,

Clinton Wright

Hi clintonshane84,

old Syntax.

Try instead this new syntax:
Code: Select all
Require all granted

best wishes,
