So after spending a great dela of time working threw the Opensuse broken yast interface, I had finally gotten my apache server up and running with vhosts..
My firewall is off.
My app armor is off.
All the great things I love about Suse.. I find Novell just can't get these things right..
Now.... The Problem,
it is so strange that I have barely the way to describe whats happening, except.. with apache, for oscommerce, the directory of admin isn't able to come up. You can run the site fine, you can run the install fine, but as soon as you try to go to any sort of admin panel it just gives a 403.. no matter what...
on a virtual machine on that computer it gives that same issue.
but on the computer sitting right next to it, everything works fine.
So, I haven't the faintest of what is happenning..
I have installed apache, osc, php of hundreds of differant installs...
I spent a great deal of time wrestling with this, and have given up mostly, the serve now sits in a vm on a windows box...
I really love opensuse, but this latest release has given me nothing but issues.. issues issues issues.. serious issues!!!
I would really like to have opensuse running, with a xen layer, wich i have gotten running, with nvidia support, wich i did, and with a web server support running at just a command prompt.. wich is the final step.. then, eventually to migrate it to a dual xeon board.. once i have sold my evga dual xeon becuase it's "NOT COMPATABLE" with opensuse suse 11.4... but this is eally my final straw.. I haven't any patience left..
a server shouldn't take months to get operational.. with windows this takes litteraly a day.. why can't linux? do I need to switch distribs? I have used ubuntu, and truthfully, sorry if any ubuntu fans are listenning, but I think there trying to make windows out of linux.. as in it's crippled.. whats the alternative? redhat? UGH! I have heard gento is good, but harder to get up and running then others, if it's any harder then opensuse, I may loose all my hair...
Anyways, thanks everyone for all your help.
Have a great day.
