Apache misconfigureation??!


I can't get it... I try so hard to chmod my .anything fiels... html mpeg etc nothing works.. finally i give everything EVERYTHING everyone has read write and exeucute... still forbidden

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /file.html on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.54 (Fedora) Server at (myserver) Port 80

i tried this already

chmod a+x /var/www/html

and i tried giving everyong everything so it couldn't fail but it still did..

EDIT: PHP files work, but not HTML or MPEG... JPEG also work.. i'm confused.

are you running SE Linux? if yes you have change security context.

To find out use ls -Z /var/www/html

you should see something similar to this

-rw-r--r-- apache apache user_ubject_r:httpd_sys_content_t index.html

Well, when I do an ls -Z on /var/www the HTML folder looks like this:

drwxr-xr-x root root rootbject_r:httpd_sys_content_t html

and when I do an ls -Z on /var/www/html like you said, it gives me a list of the files and they say this on one of the files that I can't access:

-rwxr-xr-x root root rootbject_r:user_home_t thing.txt


I'm on Fedora Core 4

1. check if your document root is on the right location your
/etc/httpd/httpd.conf
should contain

DocumentRoot "/var/www/html"

2. Change your owner:group permission
chown -R apache:apache /var/www

3. Change Security Context

chcon -R -h -u user_u -t httpd_sys_content_t /var/www/html
