The user that the apache service runs-as must have browse/list access to
the root C:\ directory, C:\users, the C:\users\user directories and
browse/list and read access to C:\users\user\my website and its contents.

Otherwise it can't work out the true directory names 'users', 'user',
'my website' and the actual contents of the site, so the <directory >
processing will terminate and file request is not recognized as legit.
