change nginx user in config >> 403 error index.html forbidden

September 16, 2011 12:16PM
Hi All,

I have just installed NGINX 1.1.2. I made my own configuration and makefile and installed the nginx server.
When I set the config to:
user root root;
I get the hello world index.html file provided by the nginx installer (./html/index.html).

When I set the config to:
user nginx nginx;
(which is what I want), I get a 403 message. The error.log says the index.html is forbidden.

These are the file permissions I have set on the files in the ./html directory:
total 16
-rw-r--r-- 1 someowner nginx 383 Sep 16 15:27 50x.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 someowner nginx 151 Sep 16 15:27 index.html
-rw-r--r-- 1 someowner nginx 6971 Sep 16 15:27 ngx_core_module.html

The nginx user is a member of the nginx group (which has the required permission to view the index.html):
$ groups nginx
returns:
nginx : nginx

So, what should I do to give the worker processes of nginx access to these files? I'm at a loss here.

I would greatly appreciate any help!

Best regards,
Martijn.

ps this is the content of my nginx.conf:

user root root;
