I installed owncloud on my VPS this morning and spent ages wondering why I was getting 403 errors every time I tried to access one of the DAV services from my desktop machine. I scoured the forum and found a couple of topics that were similar, but the solutions did not help.
I eventually found the following lines in my apache config
Code: Select all
<LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS>
Deny from all
These lines are in the apache configuration for debian-esque operating systems by default and essentially stop apache from accepting requests that are not GET POST or OPTIONS. I disabled these lines by commenting them out.
If anyone else is experiencing the 403 Restricted bug, this might be the answer. I was wondering if there is anything that could be added to the owncloud .htaccess file to prevent this problem or at the very least if a warning about this could be added to the support wiki?
Edit: apologies if this is the wrong place for me to post this message.
