Subject [users@httpd] Windows Vista DocumentRoot relocation issue 403 Forbidden
Date Tue, 28 Apr 2009 12:42:00 GMT
Hi, I am experiencing problems installing Apache 2.2.11 including open-ssl 
onto my Windows Vista Ultimate (no service pack) machine. I have followed 
tutorials I have seen online about running the installer from command prompt 
(as Adminstrator) and installing Apache outside of the Program Files 
directories. I have installed into C:\apache. I wish to change the 
DocumentRoot from the standard htdocs (which does work) and move it to 
c:\webroot. However when I do  this I am returned a 403 Forbidden error. I 
have tried to copy and paste the existing htdocs directory (from c:\apache 
too c:\webroot\htdocs) amending the htpd.conf file as applicable and still 
experience the same difficulty. I am a new user of Vista so not 100% on 
everything as yet. Done some searches online and have'nt been able to pick 
up anything. Thanks In Advance. Ian
