    I am having trouble setting up SSL on a website.

    I have followed the SSL setup instructions, pretty straight forward, and verified that my certificate is working correctly using various cert checkers online.

    The problem is that when I try to access i get redirected to the apache test page. When I try to access any specific page ( ) I get a Forbidden error.

    My server has been setup using "The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64".

    The only log error I can find is in ssl_error_log:

    "client denied by server configuration: /var/www/"

    Any ideas?

    The "client denied by server configuration" error is most likely due to an misconfigured .htaccess or vhost/apache config.

    One possibility is, that one of the directories /var/www /var/www/ has "deny from all" set.

    Try to check the vhost of your domain if there is a directive for access control like "Order deny,allow" etc.

    If your mentioned path /var/www/ is NOT a symlink you might want to try adding something like this to your vhost file:

    <Directory /var/www/>
    Order deny,allow
    allow from all

    Maybe this already solves the issue.
