This means the Options line applying to the relevant directory does not
contain the "Indexes" option, and there is no index.html in that

If what you want is a page to show up, put an index.html file in that
directory (or whatever filename is specified by DirectoryIndex in

If what you want is a listing of files in that directory, then you need to
add the Indexes option.  See:

And also note that DocumentRoot for a virtual host should be an absolute
path, as in
DocumentRoot d:/web/taz
