    Apache Security Permissions

    Hi there

    I have created a virtual apache server OpenDNS when i set it to use a folder inside htdocs it works a treat but when i ask it to use a folder on another drive i get:

    Access forbidden!
    You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.

    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.

    Error 403
    To me that's a security permission, what do i need to change?

    Thanks

    What user is the apache service running as? Does this user have the correct ntfs permission to your web root folder?
