Description Richard Wareing 2000-05-07 02:02:18 EDT
If you modify any of apache's parameters linuxconf will write
the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file with the line:

<Files ~ >

where there should be

<Files ~ "^\.ht">

This renders the web server unreachable and will give an 403 Forbidden
error.  Had me pulling my hair out =).  Just thought I'd let you guys know.
