    Getting 403 status from html/PHP

    Hi,

    This is my first attempt to put some PHP code on a linux server. The code is supposed to write to the files folder.
    I get a 403 Forbidden! error with the URL: http://asdfasdfsdf.zxq.net/Testing/UpLoad.html <<<<<<< userid changed

    drwxr--r-- 3 201405 vhosts 53 Jun 17 17:07 Testing <<<<<<<< The folder containing the html and php file

    The contents of the Testing folder:
    -rw-r--r-- 1 201405 vhosts 343 Jun 17 01:12 UpLoad.html
    -rwxr--r-- 1 201405 vhosts 1543 Jun 17 17:07 UpLoad.php
    drwxrw-rw- 2 201405 vhosts 6 Jun 17 01:30 files <<<<<<< The folder to be written to by the php filel


    Thanks,
    Norm

    Then you don't have write permission. Make sure you change the access permissions.

    Thanks for the response.

    For which file/directory and for which user. I posted the settings for 4 objects. Each object can have 3 write permissions. That makes 12 different places to set write permission.

    Make the folder "testing" 755.

    Re: Getting 403 status from html/PHP

    Thanks again. I made the change and the settings are now:

    drwxr-xr-x 3 201405 vhosts 53 Jun 17 17:07 Testing
    In Testing:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 201405 vhosts 1565 Jun 18 02:26 UpLoad.php


    I got some improvement. The html page loaded.
    I now get the following message:
    You cannot upload to the specified directory: files/, please CHMOD it to 777.


    It is from the following lines in my PHP file:
    Code:
       if(!is_writable($upload_path))
          die('You cannot upload to the specified directory: ' . $upload_path . ', please CHMOD it to 777.');
