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

This one got me yesterday. Changed the admin password for a server while logged in on https://somedomain:port and now browsing gives you :

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

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I thought it was the application so set the password back to the original and still get the same results. I thought I saw this come up as a question before but can’t find it as applied.

I’m on CentOS 4.4 webmin 1.350-1 VMPro 3.40 usermin 1.280

Hi Dan,

  1. The latest update fixes this bug.

  1. Related question… cPanel migration

And, to add to what A H said, you can fix the problem with:

chmod 750 /home/domainname

Thanks for the help AH, Joe. I’d thought that was taken care of through the install updates feature.

We’re moving the whole place to another city over the next 3 weeks and I’m fried 8-|
