I have joomla 1.5. I would like to like to access a dmdocuments file in dmdocuments the plain way, via an HTML link:
but I get "403 Permission Denied".
<a href="http://area76wyaa.org/dmdocuments/testdoc1.pdf">testdoc1 in dmdocuments</a>
I put the same file into "docs" instead of "dmdocuments" and it works:
Using Filezilla, the permissions on both folders are 0755.
<a href="http://area76wyaa.org/docs/testdoc2.pdf">testdoc2 in docs</a>
The owner/group for both folders are 1626/1623.
testdoc1.pdf in dmdocuments and testdoc2.pdf in docs
both have permissions of 0644 and owner/group of 1626/1623.
I searched and found this exact situation in 2007, but no answer.
Don't feel you are infringing on my privacy by looking at these files (smile).
