Personal Webpages (webpages.sou.edu) Forbidden Access Errors

If you get the following message:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /~username/ on this server.

 

If is not a permissions issue, you should know this:

  • We do not allow directory listing in this webserver. This means that, besides "index.html", you need to enter the full url address of the page you are trying to view. 
  • If you don't have an "index.html" file in "public_html", you are not required to have one,  the following http://webpages.sou.edu/~username will generate the "Forbidden" message.
