Subject Re: [users@httpd] Error 403: Can anyone help a Newbie get started
Date Fri, 13 Sep 2002 16:30:14 GMT
Hi all,

I have tried everything that Jacob has suggested but to non avail .

I did find some Deny statements in my httpd.conf file but they looked like 
they were in the right containers so I left them. I did not have any 
.htaccess files either.

So as a last resort I am mailing my httpd.conf file as Jacob suggested (it 
is in the form of a windows ANSI text file, as I had to use my works 
e-mail).

also bellow are some examples extracted from some log files that may help:


access_log examples

127.0.0.1 - - [10/Sep/2002:23:29:11 +0200] "GET

error_log examples (turned on debug mode in the hope it might help, but 
everything looks ok)

Try looking for a file, ie http://localhost/index.html

Failing that, check for "Deny from" in your httpd.conf.  There may be a
directive that says something like:

Order allow,deny
Deny from all

Also check for the existance of a .htaccess (notice the dot, and that it
will be hidden unless you do a `ls -a`) in your DocumentRoot.  If you find
one, edit it and look for any sort of Deny problems.

If all that fails, post your entire httpd.conf to the list, and we'll try 
to
give you a hand.

On the upside, you're 95% done getting your webserver up and running :)
