Subject Re: [users@httpd] Mythweb Access Forbidden

Okay, fixed it.

Listen up:  First, for some reason php5 wasn't being loaded.  I added a line
to httpd.conf:

     LoadModule php5_module    extramodules/

Restart httpd and viola, php5 is loading.  That was the first thing I
fixed.  I have no idea why it wasn't loading to begin with.  But I was still

*     Warning* at
/var/www/html/mythweb/modules/_shared/tmpl/_errors/db_vars_error.php, line
failed to open stream: No such file or

So next, in /etc/httpd/conf.d/mythweb.conf you will see a block of code that

   <Directory "/var/www/html/data">
        Options -All +FollowSymLinks +IncludesNoExec
    <Directory "/var/www/html" >

This all looks fine.  The first line reflects the directory structure that
does, in fact, exist.  Trouble is, it points to the wrong place for the
stuff mythweb uses.

I installed mythweb under /var/www/html/mythweb.  This is the second option
suggested by the instructions in the docs (remember, I compiled from
source).  The first option is to install under /var/www/html -- essentially,
you just dump all the files found in the /mythweb directory into the /html
directory.  I didn't do that for what I think are good reasons, but moving

The first and last statements in the block of code quoted above actually
need to point to:

   <Directory "/var/www/html/mythweb">

I'd still like to make Mythweb available to me over the Internet, but I
don't dare mess with this thing again.

Thanks for the help all.  I'm going to get some rest before work.
