I got "Access forbidden!"

Postby hanpedro » 11. November 2015 15:47

My box is centos 7.1 x64 and installed latest xampp. After installing xampp and I browse my test url, but I got this error message.

Access forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 403
Apache/2.4.17 (Unix) OpenSSL/1.0.1p PHP/5.6.14 mod_perl/2.0.8-dev Perl/v5.16.3

I add "/var/www/html" for my sites, and I guesss some permissions of this directory have problem.

[root@localhost lampp]# ls -al /var/www
total 8
drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 17 Nov 7 07:41 .
drwxr-xr-x. 23 root root 4096 Nov 10 23:42 ..
drwxr-xr-x. 26 root root 4096 Nov 10 23:46 html

Any helpful comments are appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Try this
I have solve the problem with this edit (work well with virtual host on external drive to)

in file "httpd.conf",there has another default Directory configuation like follow:

<Directory />
AllowOverride none
Require all denied
you can delete this directory or change is as follow:

<Directory />
AllowOverride all
Require all granted

That is really really bad, don't try this.
Search the Directory section of this specific virtual host.
If there is none you need to create one.
