Subject Re: [users@httpd] Re: Alias Directive Issue (403 Forbidden Error)
Date Mon, 26 Sep 2005 22:54:04 GMT
Ok. Although I managed to get it working when creating an alias that
was under the server-root, I still wanted to get it working for
directories outside of the server-root.

I done what you mentioned, and created a .htaccess file and placed it
in the following directory...

"C:/Documents and Settings/Trystan/My Documents/"

This .htaccess file included the follow one single directive...

Options Indexes

But I am still getting the same error message in my Apache Log...

Directory index forbidden by rule: c:/documents and
settings/trystan/my documents/

Have I done the right thing by use the .htaccess file?, and should it
be in the directory that I have placed it in?

Thanks

Tryst
