Problem with Apachi server with FC1


I am planning to upgrade to FC4 or some other distribution. But for the sack of getting more familiar with Linux I was trying to make apache server work.
my problem is not with the server bs it seems it is working fine, I can run (://localhost) and the famous apache server screen is up. The problems is that I was not able to run another index.html
I checked the directory, also the hhtpd.conf all seems ok
I even upload my new index.html for many other prospective directory hopping that I am just missing the directory but no chance.
any idea, what can be the problem.

Check your error log, /var/log/httpd/error.log

This should give you some idea.

I opened the error log, and I can read this error;
[client ip] permission denied to access index.*

how can I clear permissions to access all index.*

thanks

the user or group that apache runs under must at least have read permissions for the index.html file.

$ ps aux | grep httpd

will give you the name of the user

# chmod ug+r /var/www/html/index.html

this will give the user/group read permissions for the file.

thanks Dudydoo and dudulz ; I am newbei
I assume that the above were command I have to run, I was not able to do
$ ps aux | grep httpd
but I was able to do # chmod ug+r /var/www/html/index.html
after that the Appache welcome page is gone, and a Forbidden page is up now.
so I have some changes.
now for dudulz I open the httpd.conf but I was not able to recognize where shall I put -user www and group www
I notice there is user Apache and group Apache on the hhttpd.conf
I have not made any changes.

On the webserver box, is it currently generating mail and being read on that machine?

If the webserver box is running an MTA installed and running (e.g. sendmail) you can configure it to forwared all mail to your postfix box by setting what's called a 'smarthost'.

This is the only way I know of that might work for you.

Try the following commands to determine if you have either MTA's installed:

$ rpm -qa postfix
$ rpm -qa sendmail

Then post back to report which one you have installed.

for $ rpm -qa postfix > postfix-2.0.16-1
for $ rpm -qa sendmail > sendmail-8.12.10-1.1.1
I also managed to get information from
$ ps aux | grep httpd >
root 1799 0.1 1.3 26160 1644 ? $ 11:34 0.01 /usr/sbin/httpd
it lest 12 lines but starting with apache ........ all has the same directory
I think you are interested to know about /usr/sbin/httpd

I know I should move to FC4 now, but I spent few hours now learning a lot new things. So I still belive it is worth it to keep working on it until I got the web server working.
