do i have to add FollowSymLinks in the access.conf ?
I tried to put it after "allow from all" (for the share directory)
And it remains the same, or am I wrong ?

My guess would be that the directory you're trying to point to is
symlinked... and you don't have:
Options FollowSymLinks
in your httpd.conf file.

Hi all,

Ok, it's a question that is asked alot, i checked the manual and archives a
lot but i can't find the right answer explained clearly.
I followed the HTML installation pages for the netsaint program and this Is
my problem, when I point to
I get the error :
You don't have permission to access /netsaint/ on this server.
Apache-AdvancedExtranetServer/1.3.23 Server at server12 Port 80

In my error.log I have:
Client denied by server configuration: /usr/local/netsaint/share
I have also the same error in error.log for other dir.
Client denied by server configuration: /var/www/cgi-bin/netsaint

It must be something with permissions, so just for testing I change /usr,
/local, /netsaint, /share ,/sbin all to chmod 777
And also trie chown nobody:nogroup, netsaint:netsaint, and others ...
When I point to, I get the apache page, so that's ok.
Everything remains the same, I really don't know what it is, could anyone
help plz ?
