> "website like ftpsite"? That tells nothing. What do you mean?

The OP wants to display the contents of a directory as a list of files
"like an FTP server".  Options Indexes will do that if no index.html
file exists in the specified directory.
The OP added many extra lines of configuration and managed to break it.

 <Directory /web/docs>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

The name of the directory should not be in quotes.  Requires
mod_autoindex.  Delete the extra configuration.

I have not tried Directory elements inside VirtualHosts.  The
documentation implies that is valid.  Test using the main host; worry
about the virtual host after proving your configuration is correct for
the main host.
