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.
Closing because we don't ship linuxconf anymore
