Trying to set up Apache/PHP/MySQL development on my Vista laptop, so I thought XAMPP would be a quick and easy solution.
I have this vhost:
<VirtualHost *:80> ServerAdmin email@example.com DocumentRoot C:\Development\xxx-projects\xxxx\web ServerName miai.local </VirtualHost>
in httpd.conf I am including it
but I'm always getting this error when I visit miai.local:
Access forbidden! You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.
If I set up the virtualhost to read from C:\xampp\htdocs\xxxx\web instead of my C:\Development\xxx-projects\xxxx\web folder, it works fine.
It's like some kind of permission problem ... only on Windows. And I've no idea how ownership works on windows!
