looking in my Apache error logs I get a lot of these errors:
17:52:59 client denied by server configuration: /path/to/drupal/sites/default/files/civicrm/custom/delete-this-hLW0uQKV0o error 17:52:59 client denied by server configuration: /path/to/drupal/sites/default/files/civicrm/upload/delete-this-2oysK1uZ8L error 17:52:58 client denied by server configuration: /path/to/drupal/sites/default/files/civicrm/ConfigAndLog/CiviCRM.3de7c305138430bacabc11877313657f.log error
The directory permissions for sites/default/files/civicrm and all its subdirectories are 775
drwxrwxr-x 45 web www 140B 19 Mai 10:45 .. drwxrwxr-x 2 web www 369B 19 Mai 09:29 custom drwxrwxr-x 2 web www 4B 19 Mai 09:29 upload drwxrwxr-x 2 web www 10B 1 Mai 05:15 ConfigAndLog drwxrwxr-x 3 web www 4B 3 Dez 23:26 persist drwxrwxr-x 4 web www 4B 3 Dez 23:22 templates_c drwxrwxr-x 7 web www 7B 3 Dez 23:22 .
and are owned by the apache user
uid=1001(web) gid=1000(www) groups=1000(www)
so in principle even 755 should be enough.
I don't think it is related to any apache setting (using 2.4), since my folder with drupal inside is inside a directory which already has a Require all granted directive, and my other web projects (and drupal itself) do not throw such kind of errors.
Understanding this post right it is kind of "normal" that the "delete-this" files through an error? Even if, why this also happens for the log file? Looking into the folder ConfigAndLog I have observed that each month a new file is created. But each month I have to chmod the newly created file in order that the apache user can write into it.
How can I fix this?
