View Full Version : Forbidden Access

March 5th, 2008, 04:29 PM
I changed the root directory from xampp directory to media/disk/www.
When now i try to access the pages.it redirect me to the forbidden page:

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

Everything is working fine.Dont know how to solve it.
Any help will be appreciated.

You didn't provide very much info, so I'm having to guess here.

First, why use XAMPP under Linux? Using the real deal is much better, and it's easier to install than XAMPP. XAMPP is great for Windows. Either install the packages you need
sudo aptitude install apache2 php5 mysql-server php5-mysql or use tasksel for an even easier experience:
sudo tasksel

As far as 403 Forbidden errors go, a common cause is incorrect permissions--on the file in question or its directory (or parent directories).
