You don't have permission to access /squirrelmail/ on this server.


The server is a Debian-Lenny.

Could you paste apache config file: /etc/apache2/conf.d/squirrelmail.conf

Any idea?

Thanks

0.4 and previous versions works only on RHEL/CentOS 5.x.

<Directory "/usr/share/apache2/squirrelmail-1.4.19/">

What happen if you remove version number here:

<Directory "/usr/share/apache2/squirrelmail/">

Re: Why this; Forbidden You don't have permission to access ...

Extra info:

I found there is no index.html or index.php under   /usr/share/apache2/squirrelmail
If I create a simple index.html I can see that file when i go to http://myserver/squirrelmail

same thing for roundcubemail, phpmyadmin...etc

So, it looks like some ln are missed.
Where /how can I create or fix this links (ln?)

yikes

Tested on Debian lenny (x86_64), works fine for me here.

- All directories you mentioned have 'index.php'.
- No 'permission denied' error.

Did you change any apache related config yourself?

Re: Why this; Forbidden You don't have permission to access ...

I am really sorry !!!

I have double checked every step very slowly and I found I jumped this step:

    * Get necessary packages. It will create a local apt repository in current directory.

      # cd /path/to/iRedMail-x.y.z/pkgs/
      # bash get_all.sh

Therefore, some packages never where installed or where wrong installed-configured.
Learn the lesson looking at this mirror folks !

R.F.M. (VERY CAREFULLY !!!)

Thanks a lot ZhangHuangbin and sorry (again)
yikes
