If you get error 403 Forbidden for all exist files on your server when you use Nginx. Eg: you use VPS of Digital Ocean.
403 Forbidden nginx/1.12.2
How to fix this problem ?
Step 1: check if SELinux is running
Result for VPS Digital Ocean
[root@tutorialspots ~]# getenforce Enforcing
Result for VPS Vultr
[root@tutorialspots ~]# getenforce Disabled
Step 2: disable SELinux until next reboot
Step 3: (optinal) restart nginx, done!
But after next reboot, you must do step 2 and 3 again. So, you should do step 4:
Step 4: edit file /etc/sysconfig/selinux
[root@tutorialspots ~]# cat /etc/sysconfig/selinux # This file controls the state of SELinux on the system. # SELINUX= can take one of these three values: # enforcing - SELinux security policy is enforced. # permissive - SELinux prints warnings instead of enforcing. # disabled - No SELinux policy is loaded. SELINUX=enforcing # SELINUXTYPE= can take one of three two values: # targeted - Targeted processes are protected, # minimum - Modification of targeted policy. Only selected processes are pro tected. # mls - Multi Level Security protection. SELINUXTYPE=targeted
Use vi or nano to edit that file.
