Default https redirects to apache test page


I am having trouble setting up SSL on a website.

I have followed the SSL setup instructions, pretty straight forward, and verified that my certificate is working correctly using various cert checkers online.

The problem is that when I try to access https://mydomain.com.au i get redirected to the apache test page. When I try to access any specific page ( https://mydomain.com.au/anypage ) I get a Forbidden error.

My server has been setup using "The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64".

The only log error I can find is in ssl_error_log:

"client denied by server configuration: /var/www/mydomain.com.au/web"

Any ideas?

The "client denied by server configuration" error is most likely due to an misconfigured .htaccess or vhost/apache config.

One possibility is, that one of the directories /var/www /var/www/mydomain.com.au has "deny from all" set.

Try to check the vhost of your domain if there is a directive for access control like "Order deny,allow" etc.

If your mentioned path /var/www/mydomain.com.au is NOT a symlink you might want to try adding something like this to your vhost file:

<Directory /var/www/mydomain.com.au/web>
Order deny,allow
allow from all

Maybe this already solves the issue.
