Leopard – 403 Forbidden. You don’t have permission to access

If you try to start web sharing you might encouter problems.

By searching on the net there are several problems you have to check:

  • /private/etc/apache2/users/   – here should be conf file. more here
  • check the PERMISSION. This was my problem I din’t find any solution anywhere. Basically everything was ok, except that my home folder didn’t allowed others to enter in.
    • /Users/your_home_directory
    • cmd+I -> you get info
    • check at the bottom permissions
    • Me(Read & Write)
      Staff(Read & Write)
      Everyone(Read only)
    • My problem was that Everyone was set to (None)

This solves my problems
