the file is served up. If I comment out the directive I get this error:


You don't have permission to access /error403.html on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use 
an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

>What does you document root point to? I guess /www/htdocs... so is the errordoc /www/htdocs/error403.html?
I think not. Since document root points to /www/htdocs using a leading / 
in "/error403.html" means from the DocumentRoot find error403.html. And 
anyway I know my syntax is correct because if I had the <File 
error403.html> directive to allow access to the file the file gets 
served up properly, so obviously the server has no trouble finding it.

The error message does say "a 403 error was encountered" meaning "access 
denied". Why was access denied?
