Thread: isse with .htaccess

  1. #1

    Default isse with .htaccess

    I have a web application that runs on PHP and MySQL on opensuse 11.4 (web server) and opensuse 11.1 (database server).

    The web application uses a .htaccess file that causes my site to error with error "403 forbidden". If I add "+FollowSymLinks" at the top, it loads the application just fine.

    But problem is that I have an issue with the application, and they believe that my .htaccess file is at fault since it's custom. I hightly doubt it but wanted to eliminate that as a concern.

    Can anyone think of a reason why my website would error out with the 403 error if I don't use +FollowSymLinks?

    If the application is installed in a way in which it uses symlinks and
    the directives don't let it, then it makes sense you'd get some sort of
    an error.
