403 / forbidden - but why?

    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] (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 domain:psacln 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?

    anything fishy in the config files?

    well that is of course most embarassing.

    I thought plesk would restore the same chmods / chowns as before the backup but since it didnt work, I chmodded to ftpusername:psaCLN not psaSERV.

    psaserv really did it for me.

    thanks a lot.

    No problem, that is just another reason I use 4psa's Total Backup instead of psadump/psarestore.

    It's always the simple things that get us :D
