Yesterday night, while installing Movable Type on a test server, I made a mistake in the httpd / Apache configuration and got this error.

client denied by server configuration

It was an error in the configuration.

I just did not apply the proper permissions to the

Once I make it look like this:

<VirtualHost 11.22.33.44:80>
    ServerAdmin webmaster@dummy-host.example.com
    DocumentRoot "/srv/http/www.garron.me/public_html"
    ServerName garron.me
    ServerAlias www.garron.me
    ErrorLog "/var/log/httpd/www.garron.me-error_log"
    CustomLog "/var/log/httpd/www.garron.me-access_log" common
</VirtualHost>

<Directory "/srv/http/www.garron.me/public_html">
        Options -Indexes FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride AuthConfig FileInfo
        Order allow,deny
        Allow from all
</Directory>

All was solved. So, be sure to use

Order allow, deny Allow from all
