Error: client denied by server configuration?
Posted on 31 January 2004 09:09 AM
While looking through my log file I found the following error:
"client denied by server configuration"
Is that something I should worry about?
The error "client denied by server configuration" usually means one of two things:
A) When access to a directory is restricted to only certain IP addresses, a user other than those allowed tried to gain access. An example would be if you have a password-protected directory and someone tried to enter with the incorrect password. (Most common reason.)
B) Someone attempted to gain unauthorized access to the system. (And failed.)
I hope this helps to clarify the error message you are seeing.
