Not sure how to create a subcategory for this so feel free to edit (and create a topic on how to create subcategories on MediaWiki while you are at it).

[[Category:Root|Troubleshooting]]

I ran across a problem with directory access via http and https. 
+
I had set permissions on the directory to 755
+
I had cleared the .htaccess settings
+
Yet I could not access the directory other than through SSH
+
 
+
Turns out I had Subversion (SVN) enabled and had that directory set up as a repository
+
 
+
So if you have directory access problems with a website directory check the following:
+
# Do you have the directory permissions set to 755 (or whatever is appropriate for your application)?
+
# Are your .httaccess settings including usernames and passwords correct (you can set this from the Dreamhost control panel now)?
+
# Is Subversion, or some other application, already using that directory and blocking access?
+
 
+
Hope this saves someone some time in the future.
