403 Forbidden error after restarting the server ubuntu 14.04 x64

Hello,

I needed to edit some permissions so i went to log in into Ajenti to do so, But i couldn’t load the script so i went to restart the server via “shutdown -r now” using SSH and after that only one website works fine but the others i got 403 forbidden error.

Note 1 : I have virtual hosts to host multiple websites. Note 2 : Every time in the SSH after each command i got “sudo : error to resolve host”.

Any ideas ?

Thanks.

Two things to check (assuming your machine is called my-machine, you can change this as appropriate):

  • That the /etc/hostname file contains just the name of the machine.
  • That /etc/hosts has an entry for localhost. It should have something like:
127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost
37.187.98.128       	my-machine 	server1

If either of these files aren’t correct (since you can’t sudo), you may have to reboot the machine into recovery mode and make the modifications, then reboot to your usual environment.
