I'd like to know
why I am getting Network error: 403 Forbidden in firebug for files that I am not trying to access?
is it likely to cause any serious problems on the webserver?
how to fix it.
- Why is my browser trying to access those files in the error message?
I’m using wampserver 2.2 to access a folder via the browser. The browser is on the same computer as the server. The computer is running windows 7 ultimate.
When I view a web folder via my browser hXXp://localhost/folder
I can see the folder contents ok
but in firebug I get Network error: 403 Forbidden
I’m not deliberately trying to access those files in the error msgs. You will notice they are in a completely different folder to the one I am looking at.
I check the apache_error.log and see
[Wed Sep 26 00:05:10 2012] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] client denied by server configuration: C:/apache2, referer: hxxp://localhost/folder/
Wampserver 2.2 is installed on D drive.
I took a look at the httpd.conf file but I couldn't find any references to c:
When I look in Apache’s access.log I see
