I've installing apcupsd in a fresh installation of CentOS 7 that is running Apache/2.4.6 (CentOS).
I installed the CGI status for apcupsd, but I continue to get the error message when attempting to access the page from another workstation:
Forbidden You don't have permission to access /apcupsd/upsstats.cgi on this server.
The url for it on the LAN looks like this:
If I run this URL on a web browser on the server, it works fine.
So I figured that Apache doesn't know that apcupsd is located in /var/www/apcupsd, so I better go tell it.
However, when I look in /etc/httpd/conf.d I see there is an apcupsd.conf which looks like this:
# # apcupsd configuration file for Apache Web server # # files are off the documentroot of Web server Alias /apcupsd /var/www/apcupsd <Directory /var/www/apcupsd> AddHandler cgi-script cgi pl Options ExecCGI </Directory> # # Allow only local access at default # Change the ".example.com" to match your domain or modify # access rights to your needs to enable remote access also. # <Directory "/var/www/apcupsd"> DirectoryIndex upsstats.cgi AllowOverride None Options ExecCGI Indexes <IfModule mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.4 Require local </IfModule> <IfModule !mod_authz_core.c> # Apache 2.2 Order deny,allow Deny from all Allow from 127.0.0.1 Allow from ::1 </IfModule> </Directory>
So I see there is already scripting there to tell it that /apcupsd is /var/www/apcupsd.
Yet it isn't working for the CGI because I get the error message above.
Do I need to do something else so this file in conf.d is loaded/executed? Does /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf needed to be edited, if so why and to what, because I see the "alias" is being done in the conf.d for apcupsd.conf. Seems like this is all in place and it should work.
What am I overlooking?
