Apache2 – WordPress & Gallery solutions

If Apache server status page http://zviretnik.eu/server-status error 403 page not found appear, the solution could be modification of .htaccess file of WordPress. Mode rewrite has to have following rule:

# Stop Processing if you see server-info or server-status
RewriteRule ^(server-info|server-status) - [L]
# The Rewrite Condition below did not work
# RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !=/server-status

Don’t forget, that server status is accessible mostly only from localhost. If you want to change it, you have to edit /etc/apache2/mods-enabled/status.conf (Allow from localhost).

In case you upgrade to Apache2, it may happen that your Gallery 3 show following error message when you try to change permission on album or photo:

Oh no! Your server needs a configuration change in order for you to hide photos! Ask your server administrator to enable mod_rewrite and set AllowOverride? FileInfo? Options to fix this.

If you have mode rewrite enabled (a2enmod rewrite) and your virtual host directory configuration already contain “AllowOverride FileInfo Options“, than problem could be in your /etc/hosts file. The localhost entry has to have also FQDN name of your server, for example:       localhost       zviretnik.eu
