    Nice blog …

    I'm installing GLPI on CentOS 6.
    Everything is ok and succesfully view the webpage until I key in this command

    #chmod -R 775 /var/www/html/glpi/

    which cause the webpage unable to view.

    It says that "You don't have permission to access /glpi/ on this server"

    So what can I do to fix the problem.
