Ubuntu: 403 Forbidden error (specific to one directory) Apache


Currently have multiple websites on one server (EC2, Ubunutu, Apache). Very simple static sites that are simply displaying text, css, and images. My issue is that I made a new site locally and uploaded all the files at once through SFTP (filezilla) and all the text, font awesome icons (installed locally), and CSS renders through the browser, however, all of the images are receiving a 403 error.

Figuring it is permission specific I have tried leveraging the chmod command to reset specific permission sets of the folder /var/www/vhosts/sitename/images, specific images /var/www/vhosts/sitename/images/image01.jpg, as well as the site folder itself but to no luck.

Currently the images folder has the following permissions drw-rwSrw-. Any feedback will be greatly appreciated!


To your site conf file in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ add to the directory settings:

Options +Indexes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews  AllowOverride all  Order allow,deny  allow from all
