Apache: Forbidden Error


Hey all. I am having trouble with apache on Mandrake 9.2.

A few days ago I was able to setup apache with no problem at all on my other computer. So I decided to install Mandrake on this computer and setup apache.

Things didn't go as I had planned.

Apache *was* running fine. Now, I am getting a "403 forbidden error".

http://68.14.178.212:8081

I ran a search on google and this forum, and the most common reply to my problem was "chmod *x* directory 755". Well, I did and I'm still getting the forbidden error. My path is /home/www/html and I chmod'd each directory 755. Am I doing this wrong? I preformed the chmod like this:

chmod 755 home
chmod 755 www
chmod 755 html

I also tried using /var/www/html and I get this same forbidden error. >_< I'm at my wits end here.

I'm kind of a Linux newbie--I've only used Linux for about a year now. I'm still learning as I go...

Can anyone help me? Much oblidged, folks. =)

Edit: Nevermind. I fixed it. Would a mod be willing to lock/delete/whatever this thread?

We don't close or delete threads just becuase you recieved no replies but yet fixed it yourself. Instead you should share how you fixed it as it might help some other member searching with a similiar problem find a solution if they stumble across your thread.

Regards.

Ah. Okay...

I deleted the entire /html directory in /var/www/html and in /home/www/html. I recreated both directories, chmodded them (both) 755, and rebooted. It was fixed. Strange, eh?

I was almost on the verge for another reinstall. Thankfully, I decided to fiddle around a bit. Trial and error is the best way to learn, no?
