i execute a url : http://IP-ADDR/myApp on the browser.
I get the error on this system only.
# ) tail /var/log/httpd/error_log:
[Wed Sep 14 11:52:38 2011] [client 172.28.0.252] (13)Permission denied: exec of '/usr/lib/ipa/xms-web/html/page_controller.pl' failed
[Wed Sep 14 11:52:38 2011] [client 172.28.0.252] Premature end of script headers: page_controller.pl

But this url works fine for servers installed on other computers.

#) output of apachectl status:
Not Found
The requested URL /server-status was not found on this server.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Apache/2.2.3 (CentOS) Server at localhost Port 80

#) The normal url execution works fine http://IP-ADDR/, this shows the normal apache 2 test page.
However i get error in error_logs as
[Wed Sep 14 12:01:46 2011] [client 172.28.0.252] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/html/

Is there any problem with teh apache installation itself??

hi provide 755 rights to the page

chmod -R 755 /usr/lib/ipa/xms-web/html/*

and check the owner of the file and change the owner by using "chown"

Normally this can be caused by several things:

1. Make sure to correct the permission / ownership of page_controller.pl
2. You have a .htaccess file in the web root directory which has a rule in it to prevent directory index browsing.
3. Your Apache configuration file (httpd.conf) has rules set to disallow directory index browsing.
4. You have no index.html file in that directory and thus it thinks it needs to attempt directory index browsing.
5. Your server doesn't have a rule to use index.php if no index.html file is found

The selinux was set as enforcing .. this was the cause.
