403 You don't have permission to access /index.html on this server.


Hi!

I have apache2 running on solaris 10. Everything worked fine until I made a test today: I wanted to change the IP and the hostname of the server. Then I tried to look at the web-page and I got the Message
Quote:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /index.html on this server.
.
So I copied my original conf-files back, and... the message remains!
I checked all the config-files: I didn't forget anything. I restarted the server and apache quite a lot of time but without any change.
the error log-file says:
Quote:
[warn] NameVirtualHost XXX.XXX.XX.XX:0 has no VirtualHosts
I don't understand why it says
Quote:
XXX.XXX.XX.XX:0
and not
Quote:
XXX.XXX.XX.XX:80
.
In httpd.conf I only had changed the IP and hostname and changed it back afterward. So I can't figure out whay I get this message now.
I can remmber that I had the same problem as I configured apache for the first time. And then it suddenly worked without any apparent reason.

I would really appreciate any help.

Here the interesting parts of my httpd.conf:
Quote:
DocumentRoot "/space/servers/http/docs"
#DocumentRoot "/space/servers/http/docs/"

#
# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with respect
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
#
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features.
#
<Directory />
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
</Directory>

#
# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.
#

#
# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
#
#<Directory "/var/apache2/htdocs">
<Directory /space/servers/http/docs">

#
# Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
# or any combination of:
Quote:
# Use name-based virtual hosting.
#
#NameVirtualHost *:80
NameVirtualHost XXX.XXX.XX.XX
<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerName myserver.com
DocumentRoot /space/servers/http/docs
Alias myalias /space/servers/http/el/docs
</VirtualHost>

Change this to:

<VirtualHost *>

Thanks. I do not have any warning any more, but I still get the message "forbidden". I really can't understand that: I didn't change anything regarding permissions!
Does anyone have any suggestion?

Take a look at the error_log to find out why you get this error, i.e. where is apache looking for that index.html
BTW, how did you changed the IP in solaris 10? Because you have to change the IP in /etc/inet/ipnodes in addition to /etc/hosts

there is no error in the error_log.
I changed the following files:
/etc/hosts
/etc/nodename
/etc/inet/hosts
/etc/hostname.bge0

I had forgotten /etc/inet/ipnodes. Are there any other files that I forgot?
But the thing is that I got everything back like before as It still worked.

apache looks in the correct folder. I created a file with chmod 777 and it worked! So there is a problem with the permissions. I'll have a look at it right now, but I still do not understand because I didn't change anything regarding permissions!

I changed the user and the group in httpd.conf. Now it works. I just don't understand why it first worked and then not anymore.
