Check what the error log says.

That is a *really* strange place for a doc root.

Eh? Why do you want everyone to be able to access your .htaccess files etc? 
Change that to "Order Allow,Deny". See documentation for the Order

Ok, you have configured so that anyone should be able to access your doc 
root. However, does the Apache user have permissions to read the files in 
that directory? I guess not, as unless you messed around with permissions, 
only root should have access to the /root directory, and you should not run 
Apache as root.
