    This is an Apache server directive, and is a default ; ‘indexes’ refers to the fact that one can navigate to a directory and have the server display all the files in it in a list style, generally on a production server you do not want this happening to prevent the error one generally drops a blank index file into the directory as that is generally looked for first and if found negates the attempt to show files that are forbidden by this directive.

    I can’t speak for the plugin but as a rule you wouldn’t be setting options indexes on

    Yeah, just found that out by googling. BUT the empty file didn’t solve it.
    Getting more of those errors now despite the empty index.html file:

    `[Tue Oct 19 15:05:02 2010] [error] [client 196.210.129.11] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: /var/www/foo.dj/web/, referer: http://foo.dj/unkie/chefs/ovi/profile/edit/group/3

    Probably better to let the plugins authors answer further perhaps in some way the plugin does need indexes but I’d be surprised if so, but also am ignorant of the specifics here :)

    I’m as confused as can be…

    Help!?! :-S

    sorry can’t help out here. all I know its an apache2 directive which is disabled for this vhost. I can enable it but why is it needed and will it run without?

    Am REALLY REALLY hoping this was resolved with gPress 0.2.5 – please let me know…?
