I modified my 'C:\laragon\www\profitdigv2\public.htaccess' file and also my 'C:\laragon\etc\apache2\sites-enabled\xxxx.test.conf' file. The changes I made did not work--so I restored both of those files back to their original form, removing any changes that I had made. Now every time I try to access 'profitdigv2.test/login' URL, I get a 403 error, as shown here:
Title: "403 Forbidden"
Error Code: "FORBIDDEN You don't have permission to access /C:/laragon/www/profitdigv2/public/ on this server."
So I guess my question is...are there other files I need to modify beyond just the .conf and .htaccess files that I modified with to get this working again?
I tried manually changing the existing .conf and .htaccess files to match the text found in a "fresh laravel application". I used Laragon to create a Quick App --> Laravel and then grabbed the text inside .htaccess and .conf, then pasted that text into the profitdigv2 versions of those files. Then I modified the 'default' text to be specific to this particular project. Here are the contents of the files:
Also I tried editing the permissions on the public folder (using windows permissions), and that had no impact. I compared the permissions to a fresh installed app, and everything seemed identical. Then as a hail mary, I went into terminal and changed the permissions using chmod--which also had no effect on the outcome.
Any thoughts on what else I can do differently? Thanks.
