I upgraded to httpd 2.4.4 from the httpd 2.2 that shipped with CentOS/RHEL 6.4. I'm running into an error trying to serve Roundcube mail using php-fpm. We tried a number of solutions on #httpd at Freenode. I would greatly appreciate any insight. It worked well with httpd 2.2.

These instructions were followed so far: https://wiki.apache.org/httpd/PHP-FPM

The error I get is Forbidden: You don't have permission to access / on this server. The error log says:

It's PHP, isn't it? Your VirtualHost should also contain:

DirectoryIndex index.php
  • Thanks. Now I'm getting [Fri Sep 06 16:25:13.755424 2013] [proxy_fcgi:error] [pid 19171:tid 140695255897856] [client 129.*.*.*:51822] AH01071: Got error 'Primary script unknown\n' Once index.php is put in. This looks like a common problem? – frenchja Sep 6 '13 at 21:26

After adding

 DirectoryIndex index.php

The error

 Got error 'Primary script unknown\n'

Means that index.php can't be found in /var/www/roundcubemail are you sure that it is there ? For roundcube it is a good practise to use the public_html folder to keep sensitive files out of reach, so your index.php might be there instead.
