Tell us *exactly* what happens when you try to request a page,
including the exact URL that you use, and the exact contents of the
error and access logs for the request.


Thank you Joshua for the response.  I am not receiving these so I am data

Access forbidden!

You don't have permission to access the requested directory. There is

Error 403

Apache/2.0.49 (Linux/SuSE)

[Wed Jan 25 04:14:39 2006] [error] [client] client denied
by server configuration: /srv/www/squirrelmail-1.4.5

The logs vary a little depending on what I modify.

Thanks again...
