Apache Configuration Question

You don't have permission to access / on this server

I have CentOS 6.1 server and I installed apache 2.2.15 on it.
Now When I try to access it from another pc (windows 7) from IE (http:/// (=centos ip)) I get the "You don't have permission to access / on this server." error. I even created phpinfo.php file with content of "" on "var/www/html" and when I try to access it by using "http://*/phpinfo.php" in IE, I get not found error. What should I do?
my httpd.conf for directiry is like this:

<Directory "/var/www/html">
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all
</Directory>

Answer

Edit httpd.conf file, which is in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Add the below code.

<Directory "/">
#Options FollowSymLinks
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
AllowOverride None
Allow from all
</Directory>

<Directory "/home/">
 #Options FollowSymLinks
 Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes ExecCGI
 AllowOverride None
 Allow from all
</Directory>

After the line no. 555 (in my case) . Check for the file permissions and restart the server.

service httpd restart   

Now, it will work . Still you are facing the same problem, disable the seLinux in /etc/selinux/config change SELINUX=disabled and restart the server as mentioned above and try it.

Hope this helps
