hobbit/big brother problem


good morning LQ,

I keep getting the

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /hobbit/bb.html on this server.

I did a chmod 755 on bb.html but still get the error

The hobbit files are NOT in the /var/www/html/ folder, they are in the ~/server/www folder (dont ask me why it just installed that way...)
folder (and sub folder)permissions are drwxr-xr-x (755)
I also added an Alias /hobbit/ "/home/hobbit/server/www" line in my /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file


Is there anything else I should look at?

Thanks
~N

Do you check the permissions on /home/hobbit?

The permissions are
drwxr-xr-x (755) on /home/hobbit

strange I DID get the page to work by moving everything from /home/hobbit to /var/www

Your directory root directive was probably '/var/www' in your httpd.conf file.
