403 can have a couple of reasons:
- You are trying to access a directory which is simply "forbidden" for the webserver user. It is not enough to give adequate permissions to the directory itself, but also the leading path.
- You are missing the
<Directory> directive and/or
- You haven't defined a
DirectoryIndex and the Apache is adviced to not serve
Indexes within the
Options part of its configuration (per directory)
The list is not even complete, but those are the ones I had most often, when asked for help. As mentioned in the comment, we need more informations from your side to be remotely able to help.
Check the logfiles as well to get those neccessary informations.
