I reimaged my server and uploaded backups I made with plesk. I imported them via the shell in the way Plesk describes it in their FAQs. Now, when I access domain.com I get 403 / Forbidden. The error_log says: [Fri Jul 22 16:01:44 2005] [crit] [client 188.8.131.52] (13)Permission denied: /home/httpd/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable Now, the error would be quite ... obvious but there never was a .htaccess file in there and even when I put one there (empty of course) and chmod it to 777 and chown it to domainsacln it doesnt work. I've got no clue as to why. I'd re-create the client but the problem is that I have no clue how to back up my mails and I'd rather just fix the apache problem. suggestions, anyone? how do I teach plesk to love me again?
