Question

Forbidden when trying download file

  • Posted November 8, 2014

I have a directory which contains files. I can access that directory (domain.com/xxx) but I cannot download files in (domain.com/xxx/file.ex). When I click on the file, appear the message “403 Forbidden. You do not have permission to access this server /xxx/file.ex”. It also occurs on the main site.

Is there something wrong with the apache settings? But its fresh install.

Hi! Can check if there are any errors in Apache’s error log?

sudo tail /var/log/apache2/error.log

Also – please post the output of the following command:

stat /var/www/xxx/file.ex

Make sure you replace /var/www with your DocumentRoot if that’s not it.
