Hi @akshaykoshti401,

Apache usually searches for an index.html, index.php, index.htm files in the WebRoot of the website you are loading. If it can’t find any, it will throw the 403 forbidden error.

Depending on the initial file your website should load, you can edit the website’s vhost file. In your vhost file, you’ll find a line that would look something like that

DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.htm

Add the first file your website should load right after DirectoryIndex and restart Apache.

service apache2 restart
