Alias website has 403 error when accessing images

hi there.

we have a situation with an alias of a main web site.

when we access using the alias, the images would not display. Opening up the images in a new tab would return a 403 error.

we have checked the file permissions of the folder and files. and even made them 777 but the issue persists. Wondering if you have users who have encountered the same situation.

Thank you.

Have you checked the error log for the alias domain?


Howdy -- yeah, it should work with no problem to access files and images both via a normal Virtual Server, as well as an alias.

As Peter mentioned above, checking your error logs would be a good first step (in $HOME/logs/error_log).

Also, you may want to verify that you don't have a .htaccess file somewhere in your path that could be causing any of those problems.
