Access Forbidden 403 for PHP info page.


Pardon me for my sillyness

I am less than a two week old User for Linux

I will be doing a web server for my school project

I wanted to test the phpinfo page but than when i go to //localhost/test.php
It say

Access forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster

My command is very simple

<html>
<head>
<title>PHP script</title>
</head>

<body>
<?php
phpinfo();
?>
</body>
</html>

Save at var/www/html/test.php


I wonder why is there a Access Forbidden Error
For normal php page it works well with it.
I want to try to test this infopage

I am using Redhat 9.0, Apache, PHP, MySQL, PHPmyADmin
Hope that you guys could help me.
Thank you for reading my help posting
Have a Good Day.

Apache is running as an user (usually apache). This user needs to have the privileges to read test.php file.

May be you can try setting the permissions of the file test.php to something like 644. Use the command

# chmod 644 test.php
