/main on my server I can't access...

drwxrwxr-x  2 nobody ftp  4.0K 2011-01-10 14:41 dbs
-rwxrwxr-x  1 nobody ftp  1.5K 2008-10-01 00:00 help
-rwxrwxr-x  1 nobody ftp   102 2011-01-10 15:19 .htaccess
drwxrwxr-x  3 nobody ftp  4.0K 2011-01-10 14:41 images
drwxrwxr-x 10 nobody ftp  4.0K 2011-01-10 15:43 main

in /main

-rwxrwxrwx  1 nobody ftp  15K 2009-09-04 00:00 index.html

There is no .htaccess in /main, but the /.htaccess

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME}\.php -f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ $1.php

Any ideas why I can't access /main/index.html

Your Apache error log probably contains information that would be helpful in answering this question. – larsks Jan 10 '11 at 21:39
Nope, nothing there about this problem – Webnet Jan 11 '11 at 15:21

Check your firewall. If you use selinux, try to change it in permissive mode. If this resolve the 403 forbidden, you need to change some policies of selinux in order to abtain access to web pages.

The only thing we have in place is IPTables – Webnet Jan 11 '11 at 15:12
