client denied by server configuration: /var/www/ from localhost

    I have ISPConfig3 ( running on my server (see signature) and my Apache2.4 error log has repeated entries for the following error message:
    [Sun Oct 28 20:40:17.426577 2018] [access_compat:error] [pid 2653] [client] AH01797: client denied by server configuration: /var/www/
    This problem has been going on for some time, but I've now decided I want to fix it. So far, I've narrowed the problem down to the '/usr/local/ispconfig/server/server.php' script. If I comment out that script in '/usr/local/ispconfig/server/' the error is not reported in the log. 'check.php' runs fine without causing error messages to be recorded in the log.

    Update: I've now narrowed the problem down to line 178 in server.php:
    $app->plugins->raiseAction('server_plugins_loaded', '');
    But I'm having a little difficulty understanding what the raiseAction function is actually doing when it receives action_name = server_plugins_loaded.

    Any suggestions why this would be happening?

    Well, I've commented out lines 171 - 178 and the problem has gone away, though my site & ispconfig are still working.
    It appears to be something to do with "APPS", which I don't use.
    I also noticed that there are no plugins available through the repository. I wonder if this has anything to do with it.
