I've been attempting to troubleshoot an issue I'm having running Apache 2.2.15 I've compiled a list of useful details of the problem. I am running this inside of VMWare Workstation 14 on Antergos.

  1. Attempting to access resource at /var/www/html/x/x/x/x/x.xml from local IP
  2. Recieve Forbidden error in browser and "client denied by server configuration" in Apache error log (running 2.2.15)
  3. I am running Scientific Linux which is running IncrediblePBX 2.6.32-754.2.1.e16.x86_64
  4. In my httpd.conf file I have a Virtualhost setup to listen on port 6970 at the end of the file which I've setup to attempt to allow the client to connect but still is getting refused, I've also tried to check my permissions, file permissions will be listed in point #5 after end of httpd.conf file:

SeLinux is disabled and has been.

  • Try disabling (temporarily) selinux and see if that gets things working - for example "setenforce 0" - – davidgo Jul 21 at 19:56
  • It has been disabled the whole time. I updated the question to reflect. – user340584 Jul 21 at 20:29
  • Have you checked for any .htaccess files in or beneath /var/www/html? – davidgo Jul 22 at 9:36
