403 forbidden on my personal web sharing folder

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hey all,

been doing some changes to my system (mainly a hard drive upgrade) and the other night tried to fire up my personal web sharing "server" page only to find a 403 forbidden error "You don't have permission to access /~jbimac on this server". i can access files that are put in my /Library/Webserver/Documents folder but not in my user Sites folder. i have tried changing permissions on the Sites folder and also repairing permissions but no change. how can i fix this problem, anyone?

thanks

If you have upgraded from Leopard then there is an Apple tech doc about this issue here

thanks for the info there! i actually ended up having to replace my entire apache2 folder with one from a time machine backup because the fix didn't seem to be working for me and actually disable my web sharing altogether!

anyway, fixed now, happily!

I installed a clean copy of leopard on a new machine. Personal web sharing works on the 'admin' account, but not on any others. I get the '403' error on my personal account. The .conf file already exists in the proper place with the correct permissions. The default index.html exists in the in the Sites directory, with the same permissions as the one in the admin accounts Sites directory. One works, the other results in a 403 error.
This system was built with the 'advanced' server option. Are there other permission issues to address?

I kept looking for differences between the 'admin' account and my personal one. Turns out I had turned off all access to 'everyone' on my base user directory (/Users/me). Changed to 'read only', and personal web sharing works now.

Buddy you don't tell about leopard operating system. If you upgarde to leopard so check this page docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306884. If you change your apache server so than get guide from their live chat facility.

Good Day to All!

 

Please assist in line with the issue upon accessing "FORUMS" under http://www.appleinsider.com. The exact link on this is http://forums.appleinsider.com. Upon accessing this link we will encounter "403 Forbidden nginx/0.7.65"

 

Below is the taken screenshot for reference.

 

 

 

We already reported the issue to our ISP(Internet Service Provider). They've told us and suggested to report what we've encountered to the web developer/administrator for the reason that upon checking on their end, they haven't seen any abnormalities or any reason that let us end up on the error message.

 

We also have done troubleshooting on our end both system and network side and found no abnormalities or misconfiguration internally.

 

Your resolution is highly appreciated and of great help since this website http://forums.aplleinsider.com is highly important to be accessible.

The last time I got this error message I just fixed Apache's web folder permissions using "chmod g+w [directory path]" or "chmod -R 750 [directory path]".
