How to access a website on Apache server?

Question

I am having trouble getting on to particular website (www.scaledreams.com). When I do try to acess it I recieve the message:

Forbidden

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

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Stronghold/3.0 Apache/1.3.22 RedHat/3016c Server at www.scaledreams.com Port 80

I have never had this problem berfore with this website.

This question was answered on March 12, 2005. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

This error appears to be caused by a problem with the version of linuxconf distributed with Redhat 6.x It may reappear if you use linuxconf again

Search your conf/httpd.conf file for this exact string: <Files ~> If you find it, that's your problem -- that particular <Files> container is malformed Delete it or replace it with <Files ~ "^\.ht"> and restart your server and things should work as expected.
