Problem 403 in rails app with nginx.

  • Posted May 23, 2014

Hello guys.

I configured my Nginx to run passenger with Nginx module. My PHP applications work normally.

In my nginx.conf file I put the following:

server {        listen 80;        server_name;        root /var/ www/;        passenger_enabled on; }

In the public folder I ran “chmod-R 755 public” and then immediately “chown www-data: www-data public.”

'm Having 403 error.

“403 Forbidden nginx/1.6.0”

In my error.log I can see this.

2014/05/23 13:04:16 [error] 23505#0: *295 directory index of “/var/www/” is forbidden, client: <myip>, server:, request: “GET / HTTP/1.1”, host: “

What am I doing wrong? My regards. Renato

I solved the problem. The problem was the wrong address to passenger_root. <br> <br>I fixed and worked! xD

Thanks for your answer. I tried this, but doesn’t work too. <br> <br>Help me!!

Try this, its different from the one you used. <br><pre>chown -R www-data:www-data public</pre>
