I am pretty new to linux and trying to setup cakephp on opensuse 12.1. I did as told on the cakephp website(blog tutorial) and most probably encountering some permission issues. I slapped the cakephp folder in /srv/www/htdocs and then tried to access it using localhost/cakephp where it says
Access forbidden! You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server. If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster. Error 403
But as i check for permissions I get
Suse:/srv # ls -lR shows sankalp as owner for all the files down the tree. sankalp@Suse:/srv/www/htdocs> whoami sankalp sankalp@Suse:/srv/www/htdocs> ls -l total 108 drwxrwxrwx 6 sankalp users 4096 Jun 27 12:44 cakephp -rw-r--r-- 1 sankalp users 73728 Jul 6 10:41 das -rwxrwxrwx 1 sankalp root 302 Mar 13 2006 favicon.ico -rwxrwxrwx 1 sankalp root 26 Jun 28 19:04 whoami.php
Neither can I access whoami.php while favicon.ico gets displayed in the browser.What am I doing wrong here when I have given 777 to the user.
