It will be much more useful to see the error message from the error log. 
The message in the browser is for the end user. The message in the error 
log is for you, the site administrator.

However, it's likely that you need a Directory block which permits
access to your content:

<Directory /path/to/document/directory>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

An eternity goes by
On the fault line
Between then and now
