Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I've installed Apache on my Debian machine, but I keep getting a "Forbidden" page whenever I try to view the Documentation stored on my server, and if I try to view anything in the public_html directory on any user account. Everything should be set to default, since I've changed very little since the installation. What setting and I supposed to change to fix this restriction?
I don't seem to have this problem if I'm putting anything in the /var/www/ directory though.
Please excuse my ignorance if this has been discussed to death!
permissions, permissions, permissions. I had a similar problem awhile back and found that the user's directory as well as the public_html directory have to have the correct permissions. I'm not sure what exactly they are but that might be able to give you a starting point for a google search, also, try the documentation on the apache site, there's a lot of good stuff in there. Hopefully that helps and hopefully someone on here can possibly give you the correct permissions you need.
