Apache – “Client denied by server configuration” – Resolved

Published June 19, 2010 by Siva

Having problems with displaying your site and getting error 403 in your web-browser?

does the log-file for apache errors contain lines like tis?
“client denied by server configuration: /path/to/files”

Then you probably have denied access to the directory in the httpd.conf file.

Allow access by adding:
<directory /path/to/files>
allow from all

If your are using VirtualHosts then add the directory-block inside the <virtualhost> block.
