Hi there,

Simple question, but my first idea would be to check what are the permission of the files you are trying to access. For a website, if you want the world to be able to read them, make sure that the files have a read permission in the last group.

Try something like

chmod 744 /var/html/*

Cheers

Hi there,

Glad to be of any help. This is one of the great things of forums like this one. Sometimes, in a problem, you think from noon to five o'clock for the solution, while it's right under your nose.

I was in the same situation many times.

Cheers
