    File Access Problem - SubDomain

    I have the sub domain www.bk7.xtracrispy.com ... so the subdomain bk7. To edit the page and add file and all the good stuff I goto /var/www/bk7/ when I access the ftp server. Inside of the folder bk7 I have another folder called music, and in the music folder is a file I want to access. Why then, when I give the link www.bk7.xtracrispy.com/music/blooddrive.mp3 , does it not access my file. I mean, isn't "bk7" the root of the bk7 subdomain? Some PLEASE help.

    Did u check to whom you gave access to to the folder. Maybe you gave it to admins only. Use an FTP client to change access permissions.

    No wonder your antipoints are so high... you rock. Well the problem is not fully solved however... I am currently getting this message:

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /music/blooddrive.mp3 on this server.


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

    Apache Server at www.xtracrispy.com Port 80

    after giving this command: SITE chmod 664 music

    Ok im not sure if i remember this so good....but i'll give it a try ...

    download CoreFTP: http://www.coreftp.com/download.html

    connect to your FTP server....right click on your music folder...and click Properties or CHMOD if there is an option, on properties or CHMOD dialog box change the number to 777 if you want to (which means everyone can access your music folder, they can read, write, and execute files). 777 is not the best option though.

    i would recommend the number 765 that means that the admin can read, write and execute, special groups can read and write, and everyone else can read and execute(if you want everyone else just o be able to read, change the last number to 4), after you have done that, Click apply or Ok or whatever there is and then try downloading your file....

    again: http://www.aota.net/Script_Installat...hangemode.php3 <-- very helpfull for setting permsiions to folders.

    I'm with Memory on this one..

    most FTP clients have the chmod function..
    if not, see if you can get shell access to the server and do the chmod command on there
    (in the bk7 folder..)
    chmod 765 music -R

    for more info on chmod I'd like to advice this site http://catcode.com/teachmod/
