Smoke signals.


   I got an e-mail from Delonix on March 1st. Its subject is ‘Smoke signals’, he-he. He wrote "every time I try to go to your blog it shows this message: Forbidden You don’t have permission to access / on this server. Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.". This is 403 Forbidden default message.

   I asked him to create a topic on o6asan’s BBS. And then I checked up my access-denied.conf file. I control the accesses by the conf file. Of course you can do it by .htaccess files and I think it is more common method. Anyway I found his current IP address and removed it. Now he can access my site.

   Delonix and I sometimes exchange e-mails, so we know our email addresses each other. But for not close visitors I think I need to customize 403 Forbidden message. So I made a 403.html file. You see its text on the right image.

   For 403 ErrorDocument I need to add the following lines, shown in bold, to the access-denied.conf file and to reboot my Apache httpd.
<Directory “G:/WEB”>   <<— G:/WEB is my document root.
Require all granted
Require not ip xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/xx
Require not ip yyy.yyy.yyy.yyy/yy
<Files “403.html”>
Require all granted


   That’s it!!
