Unhappy Fedor 11 - Problem displaying a folder under apache


I'm having difficulty making a folder browseable in apache. Basically, I want to make it like a web folder with some files for users to download and I wasn't able to do so. This is a sample configuration in httpd.conf:

<Directory /var/www/html/test/>
Options +Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Not sure why but it gave a Forbidden when trying to access this folder. Any advise are greatly appreciated.

probably permissions. try:
man chmod
sudo chmod -r 744 /var/www/html/test/

Unhappy Not permission issue


I checked and make sure that the permission is corrected. But in this case, the permission isn't the issue.

Here is a look of what the log file shows
[Thu Aug 27 15:47:32 2009] [error] (13)Permission denied: access to /test/index.php denied
[Thu Aug 27 15:47:32 2009] [error] (13)Permission denied: access to /test/index.html denied
[Thu Aug 27 15:47:32 2009] [error] (13)Permission denied: access to /test/index.html.var denied

This looks almost as if it were expecting to see these index files. I was wanting it to just show the directory with files in it so users can just download them. Not sure why it doesn't do that.
