Re: [users@httpd] Trouble-shooting Apache 2.2 Alias

Hey Gillis, I set the log level to debug and all it said was that the server configuration prevented the operation. One line.

What we have done so far is set the "Directory /" to "Order deny,allow" and then "Deny from all", and then set "Order allow,deny" and "Allow from all" on the Alias. So the Alias should be more open than the base.

When we put the index.html page at the DocumentRoot (/var/www/html) it is viewable.

The other test I did was to use a non-security "fixed" httpd.conf file, add the "Alias" and "Directory" stanza at the end, and test. The index.html could be seen then.

Since I did the editing of the httpd.conf file, I own fixing the issue. Appreciate any guidance you can give.

For any troubleshooting, your starting point should be the error log. It usually explains pretty well why something is forbidden.

    If I take an unmodified config file, tack on the alias, it works.
