Thread: Apache Access Denied despite (or not) proper configuration

  1. #1

    Default Apache Access Denied despite (or not) proper configuration

    Hi there,

    My first message on this forum, I'm a new comer in the Suse world (after 10 years of debian, ouch )

    I really like this distro so far. Fast, clean, simple.

    I got an "acess denied" issue with the apache configuration though.

    I've installed apache through yast and configured it with yast-http. Permissions are okay and a index.htm file is in the directory.

    I won't ask for a direct answer cause everything can be found on the wiki. However, I'm surprised that configuration files are not erased when the related software is uninstalled. I've spent the afternoon trying to make it work so I guess the config files are spoiled right now. I tried to erase all the config file but can't find the yast-http ones, so it does not launch the wizard like the first time.

    PS : yast-http also warns about my network ruled by NetworkManager, and that it could not run properly with it, how come ?

    Thanks a lot

    Okay it works now... not so obvious though.

    Welcome! :-)

    It is intentional (rpm packaging), but it can have interesting side
    effects :-)

    You have to know which they are and delete them manually. YaST does
    many things, but that is not one of them :-p

    By the way. You can configure things using YaST, and later modify them
    manually; if you then attempt to use YaST to reconfigure, sometimes it
    will work, sometimes it will start from scratch (erasing your changes),
    and sometimes it will detect that you changed somethings and refuse to
    touch it (this is the normal behaviour). By "sometimes" I really mean
    some "modules".

    There is a directory in /var/adm/SuSEconfig/md5 used to detect changed
    configs. Another interesting place is /var/adm/backup.

    Perhaps /etc/sysconfig/something.

    Yes, that's expected. If you run a webserver, you should have a network
    connection right after booting, not after loggin-in, so that your
    network control should be the "traditional" way (yast, network config,
    card).

    How did you fix this - it's driving me nuts and the wiki page linked to is empty??

    Got it!

    Renamed the vhost file to whatever.conf
