however the httpd.conf file virtual hosts allows virtual host section for this site below

do you have anything in that document root?
This is just a wild guess but if you do not have anything in the document root you do not have
permission to "view" inside Directory unless you have configured it.

Other thing to check is that path to index (whole path from /usr/...)has valid permissions.


apache, permissions
