View Full Version : 403 Error

08-24-2006, 07:44 PM
Been troubleshooting my WAMP on W2k Pro and Apache was working, but PHP was not. Found I had not defined the "doc_root" in the php.ini file, so changed it.

Now I get 403 errors even on the root localhost.

httpd.conf reads:

ServerRoot "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2"
Listen 80
ServerName localhost
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.html.var index.shtml index.php index.phml index.cfm index.cfml
DocumentRoot "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/htdocs"
Options FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
UserDir "E:/Nyle's/Business Projects/Projects (External)"
# Config for PHP
LoadModule php5_module "D:/Program Files/PHP/php5apache2.dll"
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
PHPIniDir "D:/Program Files/PHP"
Action application/x-httpd-php "/php/php-cgi.exe"
ScriptAlias /php/ "D:/Program Files/PHP/"
AddHandler php-script .php .phml
AddHandler php .php .phml
<Directory "D:/Program Files/PHP">
Allow from all
Order allow,deny
AllowOverride None

php.ini reads:

;include_path = ".;c:\php\includes"
doc_root = "D:/Program Files/Apache/Apache2/htdocs"
user_dir =
extension_dir = "./"

What do I need to look for or correct? Do I need to match the user directories?

Install instructions at:


say I need to copy files into the Apache root directory, this is written for version 4 not 5. Are these still good instructions? What would change on these for version 5?

PHP doesn't like to be installed in directories with spaces in the name. You'd be better off installing in D:/php

Anything in your apache error log?
