Hi

I am using Lighttpd on Centos 5.5.

when I write http://myserver.com/abc (abc is the name of folder) it shows me the folder in the browser.
However when I define a virtual host and write http://myvirtualhost.com/abc it shows "403 - Forbidden"

Please help me in solving this issue.

I have written the following at the bottom of lighttpd.conf


$HTTP["host"] =~ "www\.mydomain\.com$" {
server.document-root = "/home/myhome/sites/mydomain.com"
#    server.errorlog = "/var/log/lighttpd/error_domain.log"
#    accesslog.filename = "/var/log/lighttpd/access_domain.log"
}

I changed the vhost folder outside home and gave it 777 and it worked.

Thanks again for your help
