All Sites 403ing after Root Reset

  • Posted February 17, 2015

I’m running Ubuntu 14.04 with Virtualmin/Webmin. I reset the root password and now all my sites are 403ing. I’ve checked folder permissions and they are all set to the Apache user.


No - no new error logs or irregular access logs

When this occurs are any further details being recorded in your web server error logs?

As a last resort before pulling my hair out and weeping in shame, I reset the root password again and now it works.
