If you have to "like" a page on Facebook before it allows you to see the content, then please check to see if its a con or spam first.

If you click like, then all your friends will be curious, they will click like and so the cycle continues.

Folder permissions for Apache

Took me a while to figure this one out. I was getting a 403 forbidden error when going to http://localhost/russ.

I had this in the /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default file

Alias /russ/ "/home/russ/public_html"
    <Directory "/home/russ/public_html">
        Options Indexes MultiViews FollowSymLinks
        AllowOverride None
        Order deny,allow
        Deny from all
        Allow from ::1/128

And had given the following permissions

$ sudo chgrp -R www-data /home/russ/public_html 
$ sudo chown -R russ /home/russ/public_html
$ sudo chmod -R 775 /home/russ/public_html

The problem was that the Apache user (www-data) also needs access to the parent directories. So repeat the above for /home/russ and /home.
