Webalizer permissions


I am running RHv3 and Apache 2.0.46. So my default webserver directory is /var/www/html/


At the same level is a nice directory with the cool default webalizer stuff in it at /var/www/usage/

So, I am thinking, it would be nice to be able to browse to this page (/var/www/usage/index.html) so I can peep the usage. I also thought the best/cleanest/most proper way to do this would be to make a symbolic link of the usage directory and place it in the web directory (/var/www/html/<usage>/index.html).

However, that gives me a permissions error (403 forbidden). This is mildly puzzling as the permissions for /var/www/usage/ are set to 775.

Can someone please help me to clear up my mis-understanding and suggest a proper way to access the /var/www/usage/ directory from the convienance of a browser?

The directory might be 775 but what about the index and html files it creates? I thought this was the whole point of webalizer, so you can view it from a browser

Ha - thnx and sorry, got it working. There was an alias already setup in an httpd config file and it set permissions to localhost. so when I changed that, it started working.
