Currently trying to load an asset located in the following branch of my install:

  • Craft
    • html
      • uploads

Unfortunately when I try to head directly to a specific asset I get the following error message from Craft:

You don't have permission to access /uploads/students/universities/giphy.gif on this server.
Server unable to read htaccess file, denying access to be safe

I've set the following on the uploads folder

chmod 774 /var/www/html/

My site is on DigitalOcean.

Any help would be brilliant


Fixed by doing the following commands:

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www
service apache2 restart
