These are my VM setup:
HOST: windows 7 ultimate 32bit GUEST: CentOs 6.3 i386 Virtualization soft: Oracle virtualBox 4.1.22 Networking: NAT -> (PORT FORWARD: HOST:8080 => GUEST:80) Shared Folder: centos
all the project files goes into shared folder and for each project file a virtualhost conf file is created in
I wasn't able to see anything in my browser before disabling both windows firewall and iptables in centos after that if i type for example:
http://www.$domain:8080/ all i see is:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. Apache/2.2.15 (CentOS) Server at www.$domain.com Port 8080
A sample Virtual Host conf file:
<VirtualHost *:80> #General DocumentRoot /media/sf_centos/path/to/public_html ServerAdmin webmaster@$domain ServerName www.$domain ServerAlias $domain *.$domain #Logging ErrorLog /var/log/httpd/$domain-error.log CustomLog /var/log/httpd/$domain-access.log combined #mod rewrite RewriteEngine On RewriteLog /var/log/httpd/$domain-rewrite.log RewriteLogLevel 0 </VirtualHost>
centos shared folder is availabe to guest at /media/sf_centos These are file permissons for sf_centos:
drwxrwx--- root vboxsf
vboxsf group includes:
So these are my questions:
1- How to solve Forbidden Problem?
2- How to setup both host and guest firewalls?
3- How can i improve this developement environment to simulate production environment as much as possible specially security improvements?
