Server Fault is a question and answer site for professional system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

So I had a perfectly good running Debian system whereby I could access my apache root by going to 73.xx.xx.xx and see my home page. Also could access sub folders by going to 73.xx.xx.xx/site1 73.xx.xx.xx.xx/site2

I did a apt software upgrade and now I can still go to 73.xx.xx.xx and see the home page however I am unable to see the sub folders. Did the upgrade override a setting and if so which one?

I tried looking in httpd.conf but nothing in there. Any pointers?

What do you see instead of the contents of the directory? –  Shane Madden May 3 '12 at 1:34

Check /var/log/apache2/error.log and see if there's anything useful there –  DerfK May 3 '12 at 1:37
    
If it could not connect, then the server is down, and the root of the site shouldn't work either. Make sure you're not seeing cached pages. –  Shane Madden May 3 '12 at 1:48
    
@ShaneMadden code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=1695 It's probably Chrome's "Friendly" Error Page –  DerfK May 3 '12 at 1:50

Check through your browser modules and see if there are any modules you've installed manually that didn't get upgraded with the rest of Debian. I believe I once saw something like this happen with a custom version of mod_security that only crashed the server once there was a subdirectory in the request. If you built modules yourself, see this link and make sure you have the right apache2-foo-dev package installed.
