    Apache and folders named "error"


    I have a problem in apache 2 Linux server.

    When I create a folder called "error" in a sub domain, apache doesn't read it. I tried with different permissions and proprietary (root and sub domain owner) but doesn't read the index.html.

    In other sub domain the same problem occurs.


    You don't have permission to access /error/ on this server.
    Apache Server at sub Port 80
    Apache reserves the name "error" for internal use?

    Thanks in advance.-

    Sounds to me as if you have a directory issue problem in your apache config file.

    Unless /error is aliased in your httpd.conf apache wouldn't be 'reserving' it.

    <Directory /what/ever>
    Options FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order deny,allow
    Allow from all

    replacing /what/ever with your information should resolve the issue.

    no it doesn't reserve this name for anything.

    try again, same process, with a new folder named 'test'

    if you're doing something wrong, you'll get the
    same 'forbidden' message trying to access that too.
