Subject Re: [users@httpd] HTTP Server 2.2.9 - Unable to view the files from IE

Jay,

<Directory /> points to the actual '/' path. It is locked down for
security reasons, and you should not alter it.

To allow access to your server, you should create or alter the
<Directory> block in your virtual host instead. Look out for the
DocumentRoot directive to know what path to use.

Frank.
