View Full Version : Error 403 on localhost

I'm new to LINUX and Apache. I have an index.php file included in the htdocs folder in the www folder in the root.
I'm at a loss. I've googled the problem and keep seeing that I need to make these changes, but I'm not sure where to make them.
Options +Indexes FollowSymLinks +ExecCGI
AllowOverride AuthConfig FileInfo

Check your error_log and post the exact error you are getting. I suspect your path is wrong since you mention htdocs being in www, but that is not in your Directory directive path.

It might not recognize PHP as an index file by default. Apache2 is set by default to serve from /var/www by default in Ubuntu. If that is what you are running, I bet it would recognize an html file. The It Works! default index file for instance. You could try adding lines like the ones below to your httpd.conf configuration. The dir_module should tell apache which files to recognize as indexes. Make sure the module is loaded though.
DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
