500 internal server error from web

Hi there

I'm attempting to make a index of /(folder)/ folder for everyone to download stuff but im stuck with you don't permission access to the folder in this server. but after a few attempts on fixing up the settings went to 500 internal server error. Kept on giving me this everytime i go in it (looked at the error log) :

AH00125: Request exceeded the limit of 10 subrequest nesting levels due to probable configuration error. Use 'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel debug' to get a backtrace.

then i went to do a re-check:

BIND DNS server is installed, and the system is configured to use it.

Mail server Postfix is installed and configured.

I don't think we have the information we need to resolve this one.

What do you mean by "attempting to make a index of /(folder)/ folder for everyone to download stuff"?

The error you're getting indicates a redirect loop (which means a redirect to the same page), which would either come from a program (like PHP or whatever) or from Apache configuration...but Virtualmin doesn't configure any redirects without being told to do so. Do you have an .htaccess file in that directory? Did you create a redirect rule? Did you install or write an application in that directory?


Check out the forum guidelines!
