http Permission


I have added the Directory directive to my httpd.conf file

Code:
<Directory "/var/www/html/privatefiles">
Order allow,deny
Allow from virtual1.example.com
</Directory>
My pc hostname is virtual1.example.com and according to this only virtual1.example.com must access that directory, but when I try to visit the path http://virtual1.example.com/privatefiles , it says

"You don't have permission to access /privatefiles

However, when I use

Code:
<Directory "/var/www/html/privatefiles">
Order allow,deny
Allow from virtual1.example.com 172.24.0.2
</Directory>
I can access the directory.

can you check if your http server can translate virtual1.example.com to 172.24.0.2

Code:
nslookup virtual1.example.com

In the cause that the server can not resolve it, you can add it do your dns server or local file to resolve it "/etc/hosts"

Otherwise send some logs of the error file of that particular site.

Error Log

[error] [client 172.24.0.2] client denied by server configuration: /var/www/html/privatefiles

DNS resolving is working perfectly.

It also requires reverse lookup

check the site https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_access.html under A (partial) domain-name section
