http to https Apache, AllowOverride All receives 403 err htaccess

Hi new to the forum,

I have a Apache server on CentOS which hosts a web site. I've set up the SSL which has been tested as I can access my website via http and https.

I would like to redirect all browsers to use https instead of http. I have created the htaccess file which contains 'Allow from all' as I wanted to see if the htacess files works.

But when I change the httpd.conf file 'AllowOveride to All', the browsers (accessing website) shows 403 error on both http and https.

I've been searching the internet for the past two weeks, hopefully someone can help.

When you have apache errors, best to look for clues in the log file.

Where are your log file entries for these errors?

Hi Neo,

Thanks for your response.

I have a htaccess file on the website which has the entry 'Allow from all' and I have the https.conf set to 'AllowOveride to All'

The error log says unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable.
I've searched this error and people are saying it could be a permission issue, if this is the case, how do I go by setting the permission?
