Installed lamp on centos 7. Moved files to /var/www/html/

When I chmod 655 magento directory I can see apache welcome screen, but when i try IP_addr/index.php gives:

"You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server."

When I chmod 755 magento directory I can see only 500 error.

When I follow magento permision setting I can see only 500 error.

Try to make the Magento file system owner, owner of the install dir - chown -R : .

  • Isn't file system owner also automaticaly owner of install dir, or have i mixed it up? I created user called magento as owner of /var/www/html Dec 13, 2018 at 15:19
  • Follow the instructions on this page devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/install-gde/prereq/…

  • I followed those instructioins. But perhaps I am confused whot is magento file system owner, since i am new to this. Is it root or the one I asigned to apache dir with chown. Dec 13, 2018 at 15:27
  • Basically you need to create new user and add it to the web server role then execute EVERY magento related command with that user
