I just installed Apache 2.2.3 on CentOS5 and things appear to have worked properly. I was able to put an index.html file in the web root and view it appropriately.
The problem I'm experiencing is that I can't put any folders inside the web root because when I try to bring them up in a browser I am getting a Forbidden error. I can't seem to gain access into any subdirectories I place inside the web root. I have checked permissions and such and I can't see any difference between the permissions of those directories and the files in the root.
Do I need to make any changes to the httpd.conf file from it's default settings? Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?
