beginning_php thread: Localhost forbidden problem...

Message #1 by "Deepak Kumar Vasudevan" <deepak@c...> on Mon, 1 Apr 2002 09:11:05 +0530

The most probable cause is

disabled directory browsing...

Request any particular PHP file or html or gif file. That should work.  To
enable direct listing of the default document, you may need to have an
index.html file (that is the default document for directoryindex for Apache)
or you can amend

DirectoryIndex attribute to like this:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm default.html default.htm index.asp
default.asp index.php default.php

(This needs to be done in apache's httpd.conf and apache needs to be
restarted for the changes to take affect)

If PHP runs as CGI, verify that the folder has CGI execute permissions
turned on.
