There are a couple of mistakes in the config, read on:

> 
> Alias /readit /srv/www/readit

So that means that the URL-path "/readit" takes you to the filesystem
path "/srv/www/readit". OK...

> <Directory /readit>

Problem - "Directory" takes a filesystem path as its argument, not an
URL-path. Here, you are assigning directives to a directory called
"/readit", which doesn't exist. So nothing in this container does
anything. You should have:

<Directory /srv/www/readit>

or

<Location /readit>

This means what it says "client denied by server configuration" -
nothing to do with permissions (that's a different error, "file
permissions deny server access").

I suspect you have (quite rightly) a "Deny from all" directive on the
whole filesystem and then an "Allow from all" from the docroot down. So
your request for a file in /srv/www/readit fails because it's outside
the docroot. If you just fix the path in the Directory above, it should
work...
