Xampp on Windows 10 Error 403



When I type in my domain name in a browser I am getting this error, error 403:

Access forbidden! you dont have permission to access the requested directory.

What can I do to not see this and be directed to my index.html file?

From your other posts I am assuming this is the same internally hosted instance.

Does it work if you enter the machine's internal IP (ie in a browser? I'm guessing it does not.

Check apache's error.log, it may contain a more detailed reason. Failing that, try your config and make sure it is correct and make sure apache has access to your www folder. If you have mod_rewrite also look for htaccess files that might be denying.
