web server, can't access - amagab - 2008-06-09

I setup Red Hat Enterprise on a virtual machine one my iMac and have enabled port mapping on my airport extreme.


I have set up a web server on my linux.


However, when I try to access it outside my network, or inside, I get the following error page in my browser:






You don't have permission to access /index.html on this server.


Apache/2.0.52 (Red Hat) Server at Port 80




What am I doing wrong? How do I fix it?

Duh!! I just realized it was the file permissions. I'm so used to hosted environments.

glad you sorted it, for the benefit of other noobs what perms did you set to fix it ?


normally 755 for dirs and 644 for files is sufficient
