I am getting this on my website. I then check the usergroup for apache and to the dir of root of project

enter image description here


enter image description here

apache configuration is:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerAdmin [email protected]
  ServerName beta.--.com
  ServerAlias beta.--.com
  DocumentRoot /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/beta-frontend/build

    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

What is wrong?

    Better to look at apache2 error log file. Typically at: /var/log/apache2/error.log

  • Thankyou for this i will look to it shortly. @FedonKadifeli Oct 3, 2020 at 16:52
  • Your normal user may have read access to this directory (DocumentRoot). But, apache2 daemon runs under user www-data (by default) and the www-data user may not have read access to this directory. Run the following command sudo su --shell /bin/bash --login www-data, then go to directory /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/beta-frontend/build and try to list its contents.

Try changing the owner of the following directory /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/beta-frontend/build to www-data

use following command to do so:

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/lib/jenkins/workspace/beta-frontend/build
