    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?:confused: Thanks for your help...:)

    Do you use ISPConfig on the server?

    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...
