Yesterday my supervisor mounted one of his directories onto my server. The problem is, I can’t access them and I have no way of contacting him right now. When I type in the URL I get this error:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /~<username>/core/ on this server.
I tried to cd into the “core” directory and do the following:
chmod -R 755 *.*
but, even with all the permissions changed, I still can’t get access! The weird thing is, I can access and edit the files.
If you’re using SELinux (by default you are) then you need to allow Apache to access user home directories:
setsebool -P httpd_enable_homedirs on
