Question Squirrelmail


Hi, im using redhat 7.3 and i installed Squirrel Mail and my Apache server is up and running. However, when i go to the browser....

It says that if i type "http://yourdomain/webmail/index.php" , i should be able to see it but i can't. When i try, i get this:

"Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /webmail/index.php on this server."

I have given permission to /var/www/html/webmail/index.php for user and group apache 777 and it doesnt work.

I need help accessing that login screen....any help is appreciated..thank u

Does the webmail directory have permissions set for users to enter it?

I think that you need to set the permissions on the /var/www/html/webmail . I believe that you need to let the people that need to execute the index.php have enter access to that directory.

I believe that chmod 770 should do it to start with. You should place all the users that are gowing to acces there mail on the web in a group and give that group access to that directory and file. You can do this by chown apache.webmail /var/www/html/webmail. If the name of that group that the users are in is named webmain.

I believe that you can make a new group with the groupadd command. Then edit the /etc/group file and add the users you want. Or use GUI program that comes with Red Hat.

Have you got php installed?
rpm -qa | grep php

If so then you may need to uncomment the AddType and LoadModule lines for php.

I am no Red Hat expert (or Linux for that matter), but maybe that error message is the problem. Maybe the PHP rpm is messed up.
