I'm running apache on centos 5.6 and whenever i try to load a php script in any directory, other than /var/www/html (the apache default root dir) it gives me a permissions denied error.
However when i check the permissions of my new root dir (/var/www-dev) against the default dir (/var/www/html), they match identically. both say: root:root 755
i even tried changing the ownership to apache:apache, and still got the same error
But when i change the apache config back it's default root dir (/var/www/html) everything works.
Am i doing something wrong?
These are the settings i am changing:
DocumentRoot "/var/www/html" <Directory "/var/www/html"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks AllowOverride None Order allow,deny Allow from all </Directory>
Note: i am restarting apache every time i change the apache config and permissions.
as well: i also have REMI and EPEL enabled
