New page:
== (13) Permission Denied ==
'''Error 13 indicates a filesystem permissions problem. That is, Apache was denied access
to a file or directory due to incorrect permissions. '''See ''man chmod'' for details on fixing

gnu based systems often have a {{{namei}}} program that helps in viewing the permissions of
a complete path.

You should check the permissions of that file.  Make sure that the user your Apache server
runs as can at least read the file.

Files need to be readable by the Apache user (e.g. 644).  Directories and scripts need the
x bit too (e.g. 755).  That includes *all* parent directories of a resource.  If you have
!AllowOverride for an unreadable directory, the error message will refer to .htaccess

Use 'setenforce 0' to test if it is a selinux issue and use chcon to fix permissions. Use
ls -alZ to view current permissions.

''noodl: The !AllowOverride and .htaccess error has a different message''
