Web Server Providing 403 Error: Forbidden, this website requires you to login when browsing locally, but works well from external machines
Posted on 2010-11-25
I've setup a new server running Apache, PHP, MySQL. Its running very well, doing everything it needs to. However locally, I cannot browse to the website/s as it provides the error:
'403 Error: Forbidden, this website requires you to login when browsing locally'
There is no reason I can find that this is occuring. IIt has been working before also.
I've given the c:\www (where the web files are stored) everyone priveleges to test. and that did not resolve the issue.
I need to fix this because the web application running on the server actuallly runs scans of newsletters before they are sent, and the scans say that links are invalid. Which I assume is the cause of this.
