Subject [users@httpd] RE: index files in subdirectories
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2006 12:53:13 GMT

My directory index is already set to:

DirectoryIndex index.cgi index.php index.html index.html.var

but I'm still getting this problem.

The messages I get are:

You don't have permission to access /cometawiki/ on this server.

You don't have permission to access /cometazilla/ on this server.

My Document root directory has index.php in it and this does automatically
load when I navigate to the directory. 
cometawiki and cometazilla are subdirectories of the DocumentRoot directory
and have index.php and index.cgi in them respectively.

If I put the links in the main index file as ./cometawiki/index.php and
./cometawiki/index.cgi they load if I put them as ./cometawiki/ and
./cometazilla/ it doesn't load them, it gives the forbidden message above.

The error log says:

[Wed Jul 12 13:48:49 2006] [error] [client <snip>] attempt to invoke
directory as script: D:/Websites/gateway/cometawiki/, referer:

I've snipped out the ip and url so I don't get loads of trash from
webcrawlers :P

gateway is my DocumentRoot directory where initial index.php is stored
