edit to fix brain malfunction: damnit... ispconfig broke my vhosts.. not phpmyadmin hi all.. I've build up my own Ubuntu 14.04, Apache web server and i had already set up several virtual hosts when i discovered ispconfig... so, I installed ispconfig and everything still worked... I made a virtual host within ispconfig, tested to see if it was active and removed it again and now none of my virtual hosts that already existed are working... now the only vhost that works for me is my phpadmin trying all the others, my web browser gives me this... "You don't have permission to access / on this server." (including https://lmydns:8080 being ispconf) i checked the log files and this is the error i get: [Wed Jun 18 11:25:45.587569 2014] [autoindex:error] [pid 8779] [client 18.104.22.168:26939] AH01276: Cannot serve directory /usr/share/wordpress: No matching DirectoryIndex (index.php) found, and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive so I've tried adding a .htaccess file in a few directories containing "options +indexes" (an possible solution I Google'd down) which hasn't worked. i cant seem to find any other possible solutions... any one had this issue who can help? many thanks Andrew EDIT2: i feel i should add that in every site directory is laid out with /site/cgi-bin, /site/html, /site/logs, and a text index file in /site/html saying this is a test page for "site"
