    Hi All
    When i try to browse my pages in apache it is giving forbidden error.

    I am using lampp version : xampp-linux-1.5.5a.tar.gz


    when i browse the url : http://192.10.10.96/anoop

    Apache error log says like :

    [Fri Nov 30 16:01:55 2007] [error] [client 192.10.10.21] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /opt/lampp/htdocs/anoop/


    In Mozilla web browser it says like :

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /anoop/ on this server.
    Apache/2.2.2 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.2 OpenSSL/0.9.8b SVN/1.4.4 PHP/5.1.4 mod_apreq2-20051231/2.5.7 mod_perl/2.0.2 Perl/v5.8.7 Server at 192.10.10.96 Port 80


    But when i bowse the url : http://192.10.10.96/anoop/lunch

    it is working fine.



    That means only the folder directly inside the Document root is not accessible. sub folders are accessible.

    I have given full permission to thte folder too. But still no use. even if i create a new folder under htdocs same error is comming.
    What might be the problem. I would be greatful if anyone can help.

    My document root is /opt/lampp/htdocs

    Looking forward

    Thanks and Regards
    Nidhin

    The folder itself is accessible, but the directory listing is denied. If you want the contents of the directory to be listed, when you access the directory, Change the Option directive in your apache configuration for the directory to:

    +Indexes

    Hi Till
    Thanks for the reply. But i have already included the Indexs option for the Directories in httpd.conf. The line in my conf file is pasted below.


    <Directory "/opt/lampp/htdocs">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
    </directory>


    Is it not be like this ? or some thing lese too need to be done ? Looking forward to hear from you.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Falko

    This also didnt work. I tried the Options directive with + symbol also. That too didnt work. I am getting the same forbidden error for the directories in the apache's root folder. The subfolders are working fine.

    Looking forward to hear from you

    Thanks and regards

    Purge Cache?

    Have you tried purging the browser cache (Ctrl + F5)?
