    I seem to be having some annoying issues after installing ISPConfig3 via

    I'm running Debian 7.4 and ISPConfig3

    I got everything set up and running for the most part except for one annoying bug.

    I already had the web directory files on my home directory of the server. So I copied the files to /var/www/

    Unfortunately, although I can view the index and root files, I cannot access any existing folders I have without getting an ERROR 403: Forbidden error.

    I set the owner, group, and permissions to exactly what the defaults are set to (web1/client1/754) and I cannot seem to access any folders in the web directory.

    For example, I can see /var/www/ but I cannot get to /var/www/ via my web browser.

    The log shows this error:

    [Tue Apr 08 23:30:19 2014] [error] [client [home IP addr] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/[mysite].com/web/share/

    Am I missing something simple?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    Is there a index.html file or index.php file in the folder /var/www/[mysite].com/web/share/ ?

    Not in the share folder no. It should just show a list of what's in the folder.

    Directory Listing is not on by default for security reasons. If you want to activate it for that folder, add a .htaccess file in the shre folder with the following content:

    Options +Indexes
