Subject Re: [users@httpd] Problem with accessing Document Root (?)
Date Sun, 07 Jun 2015 18:49:21 GMT
Ubuntu 14.04 ships with Apache 2.4 instead of 2.2. The configuration
directives for permission for Apache to access directories changed.
Check all of the files in /etc/apache2 for the directives mentioned here:
http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/upgrading.html#run-time and make the
appropriate changes.
Alternatively, you should be able to enable mod_access_compat and not make
the config changes.
