I am trying to change my DocumentRoot from APACHE_ROOT/htdoc to /home/user/www in Fedora 16. I am getting 403 Forbidden: You don't have permission to access / on this server.
I modified DocumentRoot in conf/httpd.conf as:
.. DocumentRoot "/home/user/www" ...
I changed my "www" permission with
chmod -R 777 www
I restarted apache server and i still get the error "you don't have permision to access / on this server"
I even tried setting off the SELinux as
echo 0 > /selinux/enforce
still the problem persists.
I think it's problem with the configuration file itself.. Is there any other parameters that need to be changed.
