I'm trying to change my document root in apache so I can start a new project and keep an old one available so I can reference the files. Whenever I try to change the document root, though, I get a 403 Forbidden error.
It seems like I've tried EVERYTHING. In the httpd.conf file, I change the document root line and the line in brackets:
DocumentRoot "/Full/Path/To/Root" <DIRECTORY /Full/Path/To/Root /> I'm not looking at the file right now, but I've changed this part too
I'm putting the new root directory in the same location as the default, so those permissions should be OK. I've changed the root directory's permissions to 777 and 744 and it still won't work. I've been spending a lot of time looking for a working solution, but so far, nothing has worked.
In the apache error logs, the message coming up says "Permission denied due to server configuration" (when I get the chance to find the exact message, I'll be sure and post it.)
Any help is very appreciated. I'm running Mac OS Lion with Apache v2 and php 5.5 (if that matters).
Edit: The error in the error log says [Mon Jul 22 14:43:38 2013] [error] [client fe80::1] client denied by server configuration: /Library/Webserver/CustomServer/
