View Full Version : [ubuntu] Apache 403 Errors With New Document Root

February 27th, 2012, 03:48 AM

I'm sure I'm doing something stupid here with ownership or permissions. I have an external drive in EXT4 mounted as /media/webdrive. I want to use this for my apache root as my main drive is a small SSD. Anyhow I have a virtual host set up in apache:

<VirtualHost *:80>
ServerAdmin greg.silverstein@gmail.com
ServerName fossbox.no-ip.org
DocumentRoot /media/webdrive/www/
ErrorLog /media/webdrive/logs/error.log
CustomLog /media/webdrive/logs/access.log combined
<Directory /media/webdrive/www>
Options Indexes FollowSymlinks MultiViews
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
allow from all

I have the www directory as

drwxr-xr-x 2 ME 4096 2012-02-26 21:31 www

but when I try to access this (via local host or another computer) I'm getting 403. There is an index.html in the folder to test with.

Thanks in advance!

Yup permissions silly. I had to change /media/webdrive not just /media/webdrive/www to everyone read.
