I'm no expert at all on this but I'll provide info for those who know better and will be on duty in the morning.

The logs show:

[Wed Mar 12 02:35:57 2008] [alert] [client 74.64.16.192] /home/members/ibew25/sites/advantage.ibew.org/web/.htaccess: Option Indexes not allowed here [Wed Mar 12 02:36:05 2008] [alert] [client 74.64.16.192] /home/members/ibew25/sites/advantage.ibew.org/web/.htaccess: Option Indexes not allowed here

That's probably a reference to a line in htaccess which is

Options -Indexes

I've no idea why that's causing problems but, as I say, it's info Daniel or Jamie (or you) might use to help figure it out.

Sorry I can't be more helpful this second but by morning things should be worked on.

That looks exactly like the problem.

If you want to fix that problem, you can insert a line like the following in your web configuration (via the Members Control panel):

<Directory /home/members/ibew25/sites/advantage.ibew.org/web>
 AllowOverride All
</Directory>

I notice that you've installed your own copy of Drupal (normally, when we install Drupal for you, we insert the proper line in the web configuration). Is there are reason you've chosen to install it yourself?

One of the advantages of having May First/People Link do the installation is that your Drupal is symlinked to our server-wide Drupal installation. That way, when we run security upgrades on Drupal, your installation gets the security upgrades as well. That helps keep your site and the entire server secure.

Thanks, I've updated my apache config, and all is well.

Re the Drupal install, I built the site on a local development box, and then just uploaded the whole thing.

If you want to replace my codebase with symlinks to your copy of the same version, go ahead. Just make sure to leave in place the 'sites' and 'files' directories.
