File permissions on the directories have nothing to do with it.  The
problem is still the lack of "Indexes" on one of your Options

Do the following:

1. Add this to the bottom of httpd.conf and restart apache:
<Location />
Options +Indexes

2. To find out where the original problem is run
grep Options httpd.conf
and also
grep Include httpd.conf
and then run grep Options on each file that is Included by httpd.conf.
