HTTP 403 (Forbidden) error
Just moved my web pages to a new Fedora Core 3, Apache system.

Put them in the "/var/www/html/bcd" directory.

When I put this URL in my browser:

But instead of the index.php page, I get:

HTTP 403 (Forbidden)
You are not authorized to view this page

What should be fixed to view this page?

why https? that's used for secure logins

https is working on this machine. does work.
It does show the Fedora Core Test Page.

The web pages that I moved need to be accessed in a secure manner.

I would gues the permissions of directory "/var/www/html/bcd" are wrong. What is the output of

ls -l /var/www/html/bcd

The directory:

drwxr-xr-x  3 root root    4096 Feb  7 19:51 bcd
Its contents:

-rw-r--r--  1 root root  3344 Jan 24 13:48 index.html
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  7433 Jan 24 13:48 index.php

That should work. I'm no php guru, but I can imagine it might be doing something that requires more files to be readable. As a quick test, I recommend renaming index.php to something else, and see if the situation improves.

Apparently, it is a Web Page Security Context issue.

I found this:
It helped.

I did:

chcon  -R  -h  -t  httpd_sys_content_t    /var/www/html/bcd
That got rid of the 403 error
