Hey there guys
Apache + Virtualhosts + VSFTPd = 403 Forbidden
I currently have a few Virtualhosts setup which all run fine from /var/www
website1.com = /var/www/web1/
website2.com = /var/www/web2/
website3.com = /home/pakage/public_html/
website3.com isn't mine.. and I want to setup FTP access so that my friend can access it... and in the future I want to setup other people aswell..
Apache runs with the username "www-data" on my server.
When I try and access website3.com I get "You don't have permission to access /index.html on this server."
In the error logs I get this
[Wed Aug 3 15:56:35 2005] [error] [client 188.8.131.52] (13)Permission denied: access to /index.html failed because search permissions are missing on a component of the path
Workarounds I have tried:
1. Tried adding a "User pakage" in the <Virtualhost> segment of httpd.conf which didn't appear to change things
2. Tried using chown&chgrp on /home/pakage/public_html to manually set the owner to www-data... the permissions didn't stick and php didn't work regardless
Basically I think this is a permissions problem I think..
but I'm a noob so don't quote me on that
