Hi @jdogcoder,

  • where is your DocumentRoot?
  • full Apache configuration file or vHost?
  • .htaccess file? (you can change sensible information if present…)
  • apache error log file content?
  • do you want to show a custom error pages?

in my experience, if you are using “/home/<user>/” as DocumentRoot, this is a headache…

I hope to hear from you soon …

A big hug,

HR ;)
