403 when accessing /stats

    Hello all,

    I've been using ISPConfig for a while now and am very satisfied with it.

    Lately, I had a strange problem : I get a 403 error when I try to access the webalizer stats.

    The authentication is OK (no 401 error), but the page is not accessible.

    The webalizer script works fine and the stats are updated when I look in the directory.

    I tried to tweak the authorisations of the directory, creating another user, restarting ISPConfig but no luck.

    I have to mention that some of my other sites are working fine, and some aren't.

    I don't have any other idea, so I'm looking for help.

    AuthUserFile /var/www/web17/.htpasswd

    require valid-user


    The .htpasswd is there, owned by root, with two lines for the two users I created for this account.

    Can you post the vhost configuration of that web site?

    Here it is :

    <VirtualHost xx.xx.xx.xx:80>
    ServerName www.russiegourmande.com:80
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    DocumentRoot /var/www/web17/web
    ServerAlias russiegourmande.com
    DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php index.php5 index.php4 index.php3 index.shtml index.cgi index.pl index.jsp$
    ErrorLog /var/www/web17/log/error.log
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php3 .php4 .php5
    php_admin_flag safe_mode Off
    Alias /error/ "/var/www/web17/web/error/"
    ErrorDocument 400 /error/invalidSyntax.html
    ErrorDocument 401 /error/authorizationRequired.html
    ErrorDocument 403 /error/forbidden.html
    ErrorDocument 404 /error/fileNotFound.html
    ErrorDocument 405 /error/methodNotAllowed.html
    ErrorDocument 500 /error/internalServerError.html
    ErrorDocument 503 /error/overloaded.html
    AliasMatch ^/~([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web17/user/$1/web/$3
    AliasMatch ^/users/([^/]+)(/(.*))? /var/www/web17/user/$1/web/$3

    There is this in the error.log file :

    Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/web17/web/stats/

    ... and I don't know where to look for that directive.

    I recently had a issue pretty much identical to what you are discribing after a customer installed a drupal site. I found it to be a directive in their .htaccess file in their web root.

    Good idea.
    The .htaccess is a DRUPAL file, untouched and exactly similar to the one on another site, which happens to show the same problem.

    I'll check this closely. Thank you for your hint.

    OK, problem solved.

    I found the solution here : http://drupal.org/node/30334 (see bottom of the page).

    Summary : You have to say to Drupal that index.html is an ok page as a directory index.

    It seems very elegant to me.

    I wouldn't have figured it out without your help. At least not as fast.

    Thank you very much.

    Nice day to all.
