Make sure the directory or file you're trying to access is world readable. For instance, if your web server's root directory is /var/www, run this command:

chmod 755 /var/www

If that doesn't work, try to access the page or file again and copy the error from Apache's error.log into the forum. You can probably find that file somewhere in /var/log, or possibly /var/log/httpd.

hi man, i just looked over /var/log/httpd, but i didnt found the error that my apache server made...

i really have to access that specific site using my apache server for my phpscript to work...

its just that the current ipaddress my server is using is totally blocked out / banned out.......

If you are using a PHP script to access a page on another server, and THAT server is returning HTTP 403, then you're banned, whether or not you like it. Only the administrator of that site can change that. That's why we call it access control.

can apache server use public proxy server ip addresses instead of the banned ip address?

This has nothing to do with your apache server. It has everything to do with your script. What is your PHP script attempting to do?

You'd need to code a proxy wrapper into your application. There are a few examples on the php website, just search for 'proxy'.

another followup question matir...

what exactly do you mean by a 'proxy wrapper' is it a php function wherein i can include and attach to my script in order to

use a certain proxy ip address, and run just like how successful my browser is using that proxy ip address.


thanks.

Basically, you need to open a channel to the proxy server, and connect through that channel to complete your request.

This is more than just a couple of lines of code to accomplish, and requires a fairly decent working understanding of proxy servers.

If you happen to be using PHP 5.0 or later, you can use the PEAR::Cache module to accomplish your goal, as described here:

thanks... i saw an example that uses the same function file_get_contents()

the example:

<?php
$context = stream_context_create(
array('http'=>
array('proxy'=>'tcp://proxy.example.com:5100')
));

$contents = file_get_contents('http://www.somesite.com/pat/to/file',
false, $context);


?>



array('proxy'=>'tcp://proxy.example.com:5100') is where i will input my public proxy ip address say...


array('proxy'=>'tcp://203.215.76.36:3128')


wherein (203.215.76.36 is a public proxy ip and 3128 is the port for it.)


am i on the right track on this one?

thanks again

sorry if im taking much of your time matir.... but i just implemented the piece of code... and i had an error but its a different one

its not access forbidden error..

the new error is : failed to open stream: HTTP request failed! HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request


my code is somewhat like this:


$context = stream_context_create(
array('http'=>
//array('proxy'=>'tcp://proxy.example.com:5100')
array('proxy'=>'tcp://203.215.76.36:3128')
));

$contents = file_get_contents("http://domain.com/webpage.htm", true ,$context);


i hope you can help me figure out where does the problem arises.

thank you so much....
