Apache error 403 after redirecting Apache to /media/... path
When moving files from my main disk (where the OS is installed), to a second disk (other storage), I am trying to redirect Apache to the new disk, but this returns
error number 403. I am running Ubuntu 16.04.
I originally redirected Apache to
/home/user/Documents by adding the following lines to corresponding files:
<Directory /home/jawa/Documents/> #<Directory /media/jawa/R2D2/Webpages> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Require all granted </Directory>
DocumentRoot /home/jawa/Documents #DocumentRoot /media/jawa/R2D2/Webpages
This worked fine, but since I have moved the files to a new location, I must also redirect Apache.
When trying to redirect Apache to
/media/jawa/R2D2/Webpages, I toggle the above comments and restart apache using
sudo service apache2 restart. Visiting
localhost in the browser returns
error 403 and using the command
cat /var/log/apache2/error.log gives the following log:
[Wed Dec 27 17:24:48.583062 2017] [core:error] [pid 22343] (13)Permission denied: [client ::1:35704] AH00035: access to / denied (filesystem path '/media/jawa/R2D2') because search permissions are missing on a component of the path
Permissions and owners of both folders:
drwxr-xr-x 2 jawa jawa 4096 dec 27 17:12 Documents drwxrwxrwx 1 jawa jawa 0 dec 27 16:46 Webpages
What is causing the error and how can it be fixed?作者: Alexander 的来源 发布者： 2017 年 12 月 27 日
Since we know one works and the other does not, list the permissions of both the folder structures :
ls -ld /home/ /home/jawa /home/jawa/Documents ls -ld /media/ /media/jawa/ /media/jawa/R2D2 /media/jawa/R2D2/Webpages
Once listed compare the two.
The default permissions are controlled by umask and this could result in the permissions being different.
