Access forbidden!

Postby shimi » 06. September 2013 09:21

Hey all, I'm new to linux - and I want to keep on using linux but I need to make sure xampp wil work.

I install xammp and when I'm getting to: localhost on my browser I'm getting the error: Access forbidden!
I follow all the avilabale guides, tried everything but nothing worked.

Please advise! I'm really losing my mind here, spent 2 days to solve this issue.


Thanks in Advance

Hey,

open your file: "httpd.conf" (located in /opt/lampp/etc/httpd.conf) as super-user
search for:

<Directory />
AllowOverride none
Require all denied
</Directory>

uncomment "Require all denied" with a # like this

<Directory />
AllowOverride none
#Require all denied
</Directory>

is it working now?

That is not only bullshit, that is a security hole.

You might be right and maybe you can give a solution that is more accurate and fits the problem in a save way.

I'm using xampp as test server and recently got the same problem. Xampp calls itself
"The default configuration is not good from a security point of view and it's not secure enough for a production environment - please don't use XAMPP in such environment."
so why is my solution a bad idea?

The default behavior of Apache is "all access is forbidden except it is permitted by a rule"
You have changed this to "all access is implicitly allowed because it is not defined".

If now you or someone else would define a ressource outside of the apache DocumentRoot (e.g. by accident) apache would transfer any file inside that Ressource by request.
Now your environment is not even safe enough as test or development server.

It's not a bad idea. I agree to you. If you are single User of Xampp (and as well single user of your PC) in a development environment, there is no rights problem and no need for any restrictions.
