[CentOS] apache 403 forbidden problem.

In CentOS 3, look for mrtg.conf in /etc/httpd/conf.d. This file
configures /mrtg for localhost access only. Change the 'Allow from' line
to something sensible and it should work. That drove me nuts for a while
until I found it.

You are correct ... I did read that before, but overlooked it.

If using CentOS-3.x and httpd from there then selinux is not available.

If on CentOS-4.x then selinux might be an issue.
