I set up nginx on Ubuntu 12.04 and when remotely accessing a file other than the index.htm/php/html, the server says that access is forbidden. I tried to search for a solution but no luck. Any ideas/hints/solutions???
403 errors in nginx get thrown when ownership of other files isnt compatible with the user that
Without more details, though, I can't explain how to fix this any better... attaching details about the file structure, where on the drive your files are sitting, etc. may help.
