    403 Forbidden error

    Hi, I just installed W.A.M.P. and everything is working great with the exception of one thing. The problem is that I created a virtual host for my domain name but every since I did that, I get an error message when I try to browse my website. Here is the error that the browser displays:
    You don't have permission to access / on this server.
    What could be cousing this error and how could I fix it?
    Thanks for the help!

    That could be a permissions issue, trying doing "chmod 755" on the directory containing the web files for your virtual host.

    Thank you for the reply!
    I figured out what was causing the error. I didn't specify any permissions for my virtual host directory, so no one could access my website. To specify the right permissions, I had to add something like this to my virtual host conf file.
    <Directory "/path/to/my/website/directory">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    After I added this to my virutal host conf file, everything worked just fine.
