Apache: Protect a folder by a password, but one file is for public access

Hi,

let us assume you want to protect a whole directory by password and but one file must be readable for public access. This can easily be done by a .htaccess file.

For example: Who want to trotect the folder /var/www/html and only the file public.html should be readable without a password.

Apache: Alias directive for virtual directory returns HTTP Error 403

Hi,

I have added a virtual directory to an apache web server and the virtual directory is located outside the document root. I configured the httpd.conf how it is decripted in the apache doc

When I access the virtual directory an error “Access forbidden!¬†Error 403” occured. The config seems to ok:

Alias /virtualdirectory/ "D:/user/www/virtual/"
<Directory "D:/user/www/virtual/">
   Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews ExecCGI
   AllowOverride All
   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all
</Directory>

Solution:

The default apache configration is very restrictive. It do not allow to access directories without authentication. This is defined in the Directory section of httpd.conf:


<Directory>
   AllowOverride none
   Require all denied
</Directory>

Add a “require all granted” directive to your virtual directory section will grant the access.

Alias /virtualdirectory/ "D:/user/www/virtual/"
<Directory "D:/user/www/virtual/">
   Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews ExecCGI
   AllowOverride All
   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all
   Require all granted
</Directory>
