Hi Guys...

I'm having an issue with an Apache Server...

I installed it in a Debian Sarge Machine... I installed MySQL, PHP, ImageMagick, and Apache on that Server... I installed a CMS called JAWS (http://www.jaws.com.mx) and everything went ok.

When I ended installing JAWS on the Server I noticed that the images JAWS includes (buttons, arrows, etc) were not showing, so I went to the /var/www/ folder to verify that the /images folder was in there. Actually the folder and all its content its there.. The only problem is that by some reason I cannot access that directory, it gives me the following error:


Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /images/ on this server.
Apache/1.3.33 Server at 192.168.X.Y Port 80


I already checked on that folder and its owner was root so I cahnged it to www-data (apache user) and verify that all its content was readable and executable for other users...

I checked on httpd.conf and I found that the <Files > statement is correct, I just dont know what else to do as I'm a newbie.

I will really appreciate your help guys.

Thanks!!!

Could be SELinux enabled.

Try disabling SELinux:

System Settings->Security level and disable SE-Linux

or

setenforce 0

The bottom one is a temporary one done from the command prompt.

check you /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf

there would be a line called

user apache
group apache

change that also to whatever user you want apache to run under (or the current ownership pattern of /var/www directory)

Hey guys...
I got it... I checked on Apache's Logs and I found that (I dont know why) those images were been taken from /usr/share/ , so I placed a cop of that /images folder inside that /usr/share/ and it solved the problem...

May somebody tell me why is that happening? I guess its JAWS fault right?

Thanks!!!
