sorry guys, i'm a newb.
I installed red hat 9.0 yesterday (fresh install over a new hd).
I had 8.0 before and i never remembered this being that hard.
heres what i did.
installed red hat 9.0 with httpd services and php.
i made sure httpd services is up and running.
I edited httpd.conf and php.ini
i restarted both apache and httpd services.
I went to another networked computer (i'm on a router).
typed my domain name in the web browser, it brought up the standard apache welcome page.
then i went inside the www/html/ folder.
got rid of the folder inside called: usuage which only had two png image files.
i put an index.php ( i have tried index.htm , index.html also ).
the code i put in was:
<? phpinfo(); ?>
also tried <?php phpinfo(); ?>
neither works and all i see now is:
403 forbidden access. ( i did not change any permissions of any file or folder. All the permissions came default with teh installation)
thats what i get when i go to my website:
w w w . silversloth . c o m
can anyone help me out?
i have no idea what is wrong. I just ran the text book installation from cd.
i also configured my firewall during the installation to accept , ssh and http requests.
