Apache2, pages "forbidden" from internet, not localnet.


I can access certain web pages locally on the local net, but not from the Internet. At this point I get the "forbidden" message. Any ideas or clues? I have ensured that "Allow All" is available on the directive for the document root and this directory also is Apache owning. What else should I be looking at?

Sorry, I dont quite understand,

You run a webserver
You CAN access the pages from you server locally
You CANNOT access the pages from a remote location connection to your server

is this right?

if so, some ISP block port 80, nmap your machine from a remote host and find out
--or--
you have a firewall up

I knew this would be your answer, but not quite! The server also hosts my mail which users access vi Webmail also from the same server so I know that port 80 is open and available for use.

The error I get:

Code:
Directory index forbidden by rule:
The directive for the the DocumentRoot:

Code:
<Directory "/usr/html">
    Options FollowSymLinks
    Options Indexes Includes
    AllowOverride Indexes Limit Authconfig Fileinfo
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from All
</Directory>
Can you see anything wrong that I should be looking at?

my guess would be the allowoverride authconfig, you don't need any authentication do you?

No I don't need the Auto for the sites that I host. In the end I eventually saved all my conf files, erased every sign on Apache on the box and reinstalled and now I am at the same point! Only difference is that the directive below is now listed in the commonapache2.conf file as opposed to the apache2.conf one.

The directive now stands as:

Code:
### Restricted set of options:
###
<Directory />
  Options -All -Multiviews
  AllowOverride None
  <IfModule mod_access.c>
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all
  </IfModule>
</Directory>
I have yet to add in the document root, but am trying to take things one at a time. Also, I have chmod -R 755 the entire document root. What permissions do you give for your DocumentRoot?
