Subject [users@httpd] Accessing a usage directory
Date Mon, 16 May 2005 22:11:54 GMT

Hi All,

I'm sure I am doing something stupid here so forgive me upfront.

I am running Apache 2.0.52 on FC3. With the FC3 installation
comes a web log analyzer called webalizer. It stores it's information
in a directory called usage in /var/www. You access it by the index.html
file it creates there.

When I go to access the information there I get a 403 Forbidden
message and the following shows up in the error_log:

client denied by server configuration: /var/www/usage/

So I tried editing the conf file by adding a section like wha is done
for "manual":

Alias /usage/ "/var/www/usage/"

<Directory "/var/www/usage">
    Options Indexes
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

When I restart the httpd server I get the following warning:

[warn] The Alias directive in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf at line 
564 will probably never match because it overlaps an earlier Alias.

I still can't access the usage data. Regarding the warning above,
there is no other word "usage" in the conf file except for my small

Can someone give me a clue here?
