How to config for fix

When i enter website in url i can enter website. but i enter website in url Webpage showing error.

 You don't have permission to access this resource.
 Apache/2.4.41 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

I check log

sudo tail -100 /var/log/apache2/error.log

This is result

[Wed Jul 20 07:18:22.838769 2022] [rewrite:error] [pid 234347] [client] AH00670: Options FollowSymLinks and SymLinksIfOwnerMatch are both off, so the RewriteRule directive is also forbidden due to its similar ability to circumvent directory restrictions : /var/www/example/

I fix in apache2.conf and .htaccess

<VirtualHost *:80>
<Directory /usr/share>
	AllowOverride All
	Require all granted

<Directory /var/www>
        Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
        AllowOverride All
        Order deny,allow
        Allow from all

#<Directory /srv>
#	Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
#	AllowOverride All
#	Require all granted

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

# END WordPress

As your HTTPS version is working as expected, what I could suggest is to add a redirect from HTTP to HTTPS so that the users would be redirected to the correct version rather than seeing the 403 error.

You can do that by adding the following to your Apache virtual host for port 80:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www\. [NC]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/\.well-known/acme-challenge/
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://%{HTTP_HOST}%{REQUEST_URI} [R=301,L,QSA]

Hope that this helps!
