Question Constant Error: "[client] Attempt to serve directory: /var/www/html/"

Hi All,

I was looking through my server's error logs, because it has been crashing lately, and I noticed this error occuring constantly:

[client] Attempt to serve directory: /var/www/html/

Why is this appearing? I tried looking through httpd.conf and saw that this directory was setup as my document root, but I couldn't find anything to indicate how to turn this "on" or "off" so that the error won't occur.

Anyone have any tips? Thanks for your help...

Do you use ISPConfig on the server?

Arrow Found the answer!

Hi Falko,

Thanks for your reply, yes I am using ISPconfig, of course

In order to get rid of this error, simple "index.html" page needs to be included in the /var/www/html directory, so the server does attempt to "serve" the directory, which is off limits...
