check your Allow from and Deny from directives in the Directory directive.

Where would I find the Directory directive? I read through the Apache documentation but I just didn\'t get it.

 

Can you give me an example of what it should look like?

 

Thanks for helping a noob,

Maddog

within apache\'s httpd.conf file is a directive in this type of format:

 

<Directory /path/to/web/root>

Order allow,deny

Allow from all

</Directory>

 

it typically has more options set.

That\'s why I am confused. There is no directive there. I am using Apache 1.3.26 and I searched the httpd.conf file to no avail for a Directory Directive. I wrote in the one you posted but I get an error when I try to restart the server with appachectl command. Where in the httpd.conf file shoud this directive be placed?

 

I am trying to set up a phpNuke site and everything works including phpMyAdmin from the /var/www/html directory. I tried setting up the phpnuke in a directory like this /var/www/phpnuke

 

I created the DNS entries and the Virtual Host in the vhost.conf file I just get the 403 Frobidden access denied page when I try to access it. It says I don\'t have permission to access / on this server.

 

Thanks for the help! :lol:
