I have found on my debian server that running the lighttpd module
mod_access is causing the server to response with a
403 to all
It's very odd as I have two servers, one is running as I'd expect and the other keeps returning these
403's. They are running identical configs for lighttpd and php.
My lighttpd.conf is: https://gist.github.com/4269500
There is also one other custom conf: https://gist.github.com/4269508
I've opened up the servers for requests until I get this fixed, the server that works is
http://mercury.isitup.org/ and the one that fails is
After working out that disabling
mod_access resolves the problem I greped all my lighttpd configs for uses of it (docs).
Disabling each line I found didn't help, leading me to think this is perhaps some default behaviour (or bug?)...
Has anyone come across this before or know what configuration value I've got wrong?
Debian: Debian GNU/Linux 6.0.6 (squeeze) Lighttpd: lighttpd/1.4.28 (ssl) PHP: PHP 5.3.19-1~dotdeb.0 with Suhosin-Patch (cli)

lighttpd -p -f /etc/lighttpd/lighttpd.conf and finding the old values still being loaded. Turned out there was no syslinks but full files instead in conf-enabled.
