Subject RE: [users@httpd] [client 127.0.0.1] client denied by serverconfiguration: /srv/www/htdocs/

Hmm..do you have a <Directory /> block that's maybe denying it, or lack
of one?

Do you have a http(s) load balancer on the same machine that's probing
apache for availability? That at least would explain the access log
entries you quoted.

Yes, that's what it seems like, but I can't see anything it could be. I
do monitor http from another server which checks for index.html
periodically. That is all successful. 

Only thing I see in the access log is a bunch of:
127.0.0.1 - - [18/Feb/2009:15:26:39 -0600] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 403 1039
127.0.0.1 - - [18/Feb/2009:15:28:26 -0600] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 403 1051

I get:
# lwp-request -m GET -Sed http://localhost
GET http://localhost --> 403 Forbidden
Connection: close

Title: Access forbidden!

So that basically confirms that localhost is denied. How do I allow
access and does it seem safe to allow it?

The configuration is:
 <Directory /srv/www/htdocs/>
  AllowOverride None
  Order allow,deny
  Allow from all
 </Directory>

Thanks,
James
