Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Hi all,

something went wrong with my server. Everything works fine until i tra to create new virtual server.

After creating virtual server and after systems apply apache setting a refresh virtualmin non https server stops working and shows : "Forbidden

You don’t have permission to access / on this server."

But if i try to acces to the same web page to https it works.

Next interesting thing is if i set disable domain for recently added domain it show “Disabled” message on all http domains on virtualmin server.

Have anyone any idea what is going on?

Thank you

Interesting thing is that https is working

Please double check configure website -> edit directives that DocumentRoot points for the right directory.
Also check under Webmin -> Servers -> Apache that all non SSL host have set Address to ANY and SSL have IP


We have the same problem described here :

Do you have found a solution to your problem ?


Check to see if the webmin service is running. This happened to me after I did some upgrades yesterday. Once I restarted it, it’s working.

/etc/init.d/webmin status

Webmin is stopped

/etc/init.d/webmin start


Thanks a lot for the tips. I will check later when there will ne less traffic on my websites.
