First off, thank you for taking your time to help me out!
I have a basic setup with ubuntu-server (10.04) and apache2 (by apt-get).
The thing is I can't change the documentroot of my web page from /var/www to example /home/user/www although the directory is created and the necessary changes has been made in /etc/apache2/sites-available/default.
I've figured this is a permission issue since I always get a 403 error every time I try to access my http://local-ip-to-server
. My permissions set to the new folder is as follows:
drwxr-xr-x 2 user user 4096 2010-05-31 18:27 www
(where user is me)
Same goes for the files inside www
drwxr-xr-x 2 user user 4096 2010-05-31 18:27 .
drwx------ 6 user user 4096 2010-05-31 18:48 ..
-rw-r--r-- 1 user user 29 2010-05-31 18:27 index.html
Also, the desktop installation I have of ubuntu 10.04 has no problem with changing the documentroot to /home/user/www by just creating that folder and putting a basic index.html inside. The permissions are exact as I figure it.
Am i missing something here? Please help!
