I've seen others asking this, but none of the solutions seem to work for me. I'm running a Drupal site, and I did make a stats password. When I go to the /stats directory I get a 403 error. The log says: Code: Directory index forbidden by Options directive . If I bypass the permissions in the apache conf file, opening up the directory for all to see: Code: <Directory /var/www/www.domainame.com/web/stats/> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None </Directory> I can get to the stats pages. The look fine, and are updating as expected. All the permissions are set correctly too. What else do I need to do?
