Disclaimer: I have read most of the articles in this forum regarding this one (I know there are quite a many of them). And since none of the fixes listed here could help me I thought asking a new question.


I have the bitnami lampstack installed in ubuntu 12.10 server edition. I have testlink module isnatlled in it.

I am trying to install bugzilla on top of this lampstack (not the default one) which I will later integrate with testlink. I have successfully installed bugzilla with all its dependencies on this stack. But when i try to access the site using URL I am getting the "Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /bugzilla/ on this server." error.

I am using the basic structure folder: - apps/myapp |- htdocs |- conf

I have done the following.

  • Have included the following lines in "/opt/lampstack-5.4.11-1/apps/bugzilla/conf/bugzilla.conf"

Alias /bugzilla/ "/opt/lampstack-5.4.11-1/apps/bugzilla/htdocs/"

Alias /bugzilla "/opt/lampstack-5.4.11-1/apps/bugzilla/htdocs"

Options +MultiViews

AllowOverride All

<IfVersion < 2.3 >

Order allow,deny

Allow from all


<IfVersion >= 2.3>

Require all granted

</IfVersion> </Directory>
  • I have added the following in "/opt/lampstack-5.4.11-1/apache2/conf/httpd.conf"

Include "/opt/lampstack-5.4.11-1/apps/bugzilla/conf/bugzilla.conf"

And then I have religiously restarted the server. And still I am getting teh forbidden error. I have tried almost every fix I could find.

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong here?

  • Besides using a "LAMP stack"? What version of Apache do you have? – Michael Hampton Mar 1 '13 at 14:01
  • @MichaelHampton I have apache2. For both of them. The normal apache2 is running on port 80 – Rabimba Karanjai Mar 2 '13 at 18:34
