A tip: stop trying to debug using the browser error message. These are
at best ambiguous. Go for the actual entry in the apache error log. That
will distinguish between a problem with the apache access coditions
(denied by server config) and a unix file permissions (permission
denied).

BTW, for serving plain files, apache only needs read-access. Since the
default mode is usually 755, apache should be able to read files
belonging to any other users.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
