Upgrade from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3 - now You don't have permission to access / on this server.

  • Everything was going well.
    So I upgraded to V2.2.3

    now I cannot access the web interface at all.

    I get the error 'You don't have permission to access / on this server.'

    The PFSENSE is running though.

    Does anyone know anything useful about this error or how to fix it?

    many thanks

  • Are you using https?
    Or are you being redirected to https?

    Try accessing your pfSense admin page like this:-

    My guess is that you may have a new self-signed certificate to permanently accept.

  • I had something similar happen when my box assigned a bad IP to the bridged LAN port but still had rules operating that referenced the correct addresses for nat.

    try connecting a console cable to check that your LAN IP is right.

    after I upgraded, on boot it was assigning a VIP instead of the IP I'd configured.  wired clients with static IPS got routed to the login page but no login was permitted.

  • I did not have https switched on before. Anyway tried that and http - still no go.

    I checked the LAN static IP and its correct (igb0) in my network and the external address is correct. The externall (em0) is DHCPed from my ISP and seems ok.

    So I don't think thats where the problem lies either

    Somehow the root web page is missing - this is more likely.

  • Did you try to restart the web configurator from the console?

  • As my setup is pretty simple - I am going to reload everything from scratch.

    nothing fixes it - although the Pfsense machine is still working. I do have access to the CLI.

    Restart the web configurator did not do anything useful

  • You're redirecting it somewhere else. There are suggested workarounds to get in here: https://doc.pfsense.org/index.php/Locked_out_of_the_WebGUI
