in Apache on Ubuntu I’ve set up a vhost, but in the browser I keep getting a “403 Access forbidden” error; the log says “Client denied by server configuration: /home/remix/“.
Looking for the solution online I found many posts about the directory access (Allow from all, etc), but as far as I know I already did that. In httpd-vhosts.conf there is the following code:
NameVirtualHost *:80 <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin email@example.com DocumentRoot "/opt/lampp/htdocs/" ServerName localhost ServerAlias localhost ErrorLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-error_log" CustomLog "logs/dummy-host.example.com-access_log" common </VirtualHost> <VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost DocumentRoot "/home/remix/" ServerName testproject ServerAlias testproject <Directory "/home/remix/"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI AllowOverride All Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory> </VirtualHost>
I’ve also added
to the /etc/hosts file.
Also, the /home/remix/ folder contains an index.html file and vhosts are enabled in httpd.conf.
Is there anything I’m not seeing?
Edit: This is the Apache error_log entry:
[Sat Aug 18 09:15:32.666938 2012] [authz_core:error] [pid 6587] [client 127.0.0.1:38873] AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /home/remix/
Check the permissions on the directory. I would bet that it’s set to deny access to anyone but yourself, for instance:
$ ls -ld /home/remix drwx------ 92 remix remix 4096 Aug 17 22:59 /home/remix
If you see
drwx------ exactly, then this is the case. Fix it by running:
chmod a+x /home/remix
