Windows Desktop Client: 403 forbidden

Postby cvdeeden » Wed Sep 11, 2013 9:56 pm

Hello

I have successfully installed owncloud on my server and it works fine, everything is up and running
There's only just 1 problem, the desktop client (windows) gives an 403 Forbidden error back everytime when syncing with the server.

I have turned off my firewall on my computer and added my computer's IP to the whitelist on the server.
I cannot find the problem, so i have provided information below and hope someone can help me.


---

Information:
CentOS 6
Apache
PHP 5.3
SQLite

Desktop client running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit without firewall


Though the log output is HUGE i cannot post it full here. Please tell me where or what part of the log output I need to show. For example, what keywords has the part which people need to help, etc.

A screenshot of the sync problem:

Hi,

ok then try to use an online translator to translate the FAQ if you don't understand some parts. Your webserver is blocking the access of the client or is blocking some methods. How to fix this is described in the linked FAQ thread.

hi

okay well i translated it but i dont see any part about 'if you see a 403 forbidden, do this and do that to fix it'
do i just need to start with step 1 and do everything till the last step or is it some part i need to read?

Hi,

unfortunately there can't be a "if you're getting an 403 do this" step by step instruction about this error because there can be tons of reasons why this happens. Just work your way through the faq.

And don't need to use lithmus because you're already getting this 403 forbidden message.

hi

okay well i'm at the step where they say this:


To check the rewrite module (apache)
Make sure the rewrite module is enabled; as root, execute:
CODE: SELECTEER ALLES
a2enmod rewrite



I cannot execute that command, it will say command not found when using it in SSH on root

Hi,

have a look at your operating system manual or some tutorials for apache on CentOS if this command is available. Could be possible that this is something ubuntu / debian specific.

You could use google to find some infos on how to enable the rewrite module on CentOS. I think you will find a lot of more informations on such 403 messages with your favorite search engine because most times such an message is nothing ownCloud specific.
