When I start Apache by editing httpd.conf on macOS, I get a Forbidden response.

First of all, our system environment.
macOS Sierra Apache: 2.4.25(Unix)
mysql:stable 5.7.19

Launch the server and


You can also access the

Forbiden You don't have permission to access/on this server.

The error log can be found in

Cannot save directory/users/Username/Sites/: 
No matching DirectoryIndex(index.php, index.html, index.html, index.php) found,     
and server-generated directory index forbidden by Options directive

You don't have permission to access/on this server.

does not directly refer to permissions on the file system.In some cases, this is a common message that occurs when Apache is stuck with access restrictions or permission restrictions.

In this case, the error message is

  • Index.php, index.html used in DirectoryIndex not found
  • List prohibited (no Options Indexes)

It says.Add Indexes to Options at httd.conf or create index.html or index.php.


It's a snake's foot, but

Include/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-userdir.conf #CommentOut

I don't know if I left a comment or not.If you commented out,

#Include/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-userdir.conf #Commentout

indicates the actual comment out, otherwise

Include/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-userdir.conf #Uncomment out

It would be better to make comments reflecting the actual situation.

First of all, it would be good to verify the existence and permission of the directory with the following command:


*Also, the ls command seems to pass, but I think it would be better to specify /Users instead of /users.

Since there is no permission, why don't you check the designated user with the following commands and change the owner of the document route?

httpd-t-DDUMP_CONFIG2>/dev/null | grep "User"
chown-Rwww: www/Users/yusuke3627/Sites/
