After default CentOs 5.5 install - Document_Root directory (/var/www/html) is owned by root. In my httpd.conf file I have:
user apache group apache
mmm. Should I change ownership of /var/www/html to apache:apache?
Never mind. I was trying to figure out why I can't access a directory that i've created inside of the Document_Root. Then I've stoped SELinux and was able to access that directory.
