squirrelmail problem


Hi..All,
I followed this link to install & configure squirrel mail on ubntu 11.04. I followed each step as it is in the url but at last if I type "localhost/webmail" in the browser, it is giving the error as below
Quote:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /webmail on this server.
Apache/2.2.17 (Ubuntu) Server at localhost Port 80
But I am able to browse wiki pages if give only localhost.
The transparent proxy is configured in the same machine and working fine. The details as below
eth0---192.168.1.2(internet)
eth1---192.168.0.1(lan)
Please see the iptables rules and let me know if any port has to opened.
Quote:
#iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy DROP)
target prot opt source destination
ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere
ACCEPT all -- anywhere anywhere state RELATED,ESTABLISHED

Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain POSTROUTING (policy ACCEPT)

Please help me to fix this squirrel mail problem.

Hi,

In the very first lines of the guide you followed, it says to add index.php in the DirectoryIndex directive.
Have you done that?

Hi..Thanks for the reply.
The index.php is already there in /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/dir.conf file. As you said I followed this link. Please see my PC configuration files.

I am able to browse even from other machines using IP address and domain name. But not for webmail. If I give 192.168.0.1/webmail, this time it giving unable to connect error as in the attachement. So please help me to fix the squirrelmail problem.

It doesn't make sense. If you can visit http://192.168.0.1 then you should be able to visit also http://192.168.0.1/webmail.

The "Forbidden" error you mentioned in your 1st post could be explained by the lack of the index.php in the DirectoryIndex option, or by the Allow/Deny directives or even by the webmail directory/file permissions.
The fact that you can connect to 192.168.0.1 but not to 192.168.0.1/webmail is a totally different thing.
You should clear you browser cache and try again, or use a different browser.

Regards

I have already recursively changed the ownership and group to www-data. I request you to review my configuration files and let me know in which file I have to add index.php. Since I am newbie in apache I request you to mention sample configurations. I also cleared cache from the browser, restarted apache service and retried "192.168.0.1/webmail". But still I am facing the same error i.e "unable to connect

Hi,

What you have done above is useful only if you get a "Forbidden" error, that is not the case here.
In your case you say you can't connect to 192.168.0.1/webmail while you can connect to 192.168.0.1/, which doesn't make sense, as it rules out any kind of connectivity and/or firewall problems.
