Spacewalk install on CentOS

Hi All,

Please I need assistance in resolving this issue on spacewalk.

I installed spacewalk 2.0 on Centos 6.6 and all the service are running properly but I can't get to the web page to complete the installation. When I try to access the https://ip I get Forbidden you don't have permission to access / on the server.

/usr/sbin/spacewalk-service status
postmaster (pid 8006) is running...
router (pid 5079) is running...
sm (pid 5089) is running...
c2s (pid 5099) is running...
s2s (pid 5109) is running...
tomcat6 (pid 1624) is running...
httpd (pid 1818) is running...
osa-dispatcher (pid 5133) is running...
rhn-search is running (1901).
cobblerd (pid 1941) is running...
RHN Taskomatic is running (1969).

I have tried to randomly change the ownership of some files to root:apache but I am still getting the same error.

I will be willing to provide any additional information if needed to assist to troubleshoot this issue.

Thanks in advance.

Spacewalk, as I recall, uses a pk/pki infrastructure for authentication, did you set up your private keys correctly?
Also, is there a second spacewalk server on the network and could it be conflicting with the first?

Thanks for responding.

Yes I have the certificates installed as you can see from my output of ls -l

[root@rhce4 certs]# ls -l
total 1772
-rw-r--r-- 1 root apache 786601 Jul 14 10:55 ca-bundle.crt
-rw-r--r-- 1 root apache 1005005 Jul 14 10:55
-rw-------. 1 root apache 1172 Aug 11 23:15 localhost.crt
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root apache 610 Nov 6 07:30 make-dummy-cert
-rw-r--r-- 1 root apache 2242 Nov 6 07:30 Makefile
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root apache 829 Nov 6 07:30 renew-dummy-cert
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root apache 38 Nov 30 02:01 spacewalk.crt -> ../../../httpd/conf/ssl.crt/server.crt
[root@rhce4 certs]# cd ..
[root@rhce4 tls]# cd private/
[root@rhce4 private]# ls -l
total 4
-rw-------. 1 root apache 887 Aug 11 23:15 localhost.key
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root apache 38 Nov 30 02:01 spacewalk.key -> ../../../httpd/conf/ssl.key/server.key

Secondly, I do not have any other spacewalk server on the network.

Thank you.
