Check /var/log/apache2/error_log. –  ceejayoz May 23 '11 at 3:22
thanks \n last error in error.log is as such [Mon May 23 18:30:07 2011] [error] [client] client denied by server configuration: /usr/share/cout/install.php –  Mujtaba Haider May 23 '11 at 19:04
Is /usr/share/cout where you installed Drupal? If not, your DocumentRoot is not pointing where you want it to point. –  BMDan May 24 '11 at 1:16
