    Apache inquiry


    How do you change the default location where Apache looks for the default root (html, etc)?

    By default in httpd2.conf it is set for /var/www/html as the root html directory, I have modified it to use another location /home/www applied the changes and then restarted Apache.

    At that point I recieve a 403 error message (403 Forbidden) I believe is the message. I change it back to the default /var/www/html and it works.

    Any ideas?

    Most likely it is a file access permission that is causing the problem. Is the /home/www directory readable and executable for all users?

    they must be world readable eg
    Code:
    chmod 644 index.html
