Problems with the Mac OS X version of XAMPP, questions, comments, and anything related.

(13)Permission denied: access to..

Postby erikvold » 05. March 2010 06:10


I've been using xampp on my macbook for about 2 years now without a problem, and setup the following site from the beginning:
Code: Select all
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName scribble.lan
    DocumentRoot "/www/scribble.lan"
    Alias /CFIDE "/Applications/XAMPP/xamppfiles/htdocs/CFIDE"
    <Directory "/www/scribble.lan">
        Options FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride AuthConfig
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all

And I used to use this site and others that are very similar quite often, such as one named erikvold.lan, but I haven't used it (meaning a apache site on my macbook, which I just have setup for development purposes) for a couple of months, because I've been using my desktop instead. Anyhow I tried to use the scribble.lan site today and I got the following error:
Code: Select all
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

Thu Mar 4 21:02:01 2010
Apache/2.2.11 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.7l PHP/5.2.9 mod_perl/2.0.4 Perl/v5.10.0

and in the apache error log I see the following very often:
Code: Select all
[Thu Mar 04 19:22:30 2010] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: access to /index.html denied
[Thu Mar 04 19:22:30 2010] [error] [client] (13)Permission denied: access to /favicon.ico denied

the read permissions appear correct, and I haven't changed them as I recall, in fact I don't thing anything really changed in my apache setup that I am aware of, and no one else uses this computer.. so I'm dumbfounded as to what the problem could be..

Can anyone help my out please?
