error when setting up multiple domains


I am currently managing my own website e.g. which is working fine and now would like to host another domain (e.g. on the same machine running Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS.

I looked this up via google search and found that I need something like name-based virtual hosts.

So I made some changes in my apache2 httpd.conf by adding the following:
Listen 80

NameVirtualHost *:80

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs"

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/usr/local/apache2/htdocs/myothersite/otherexample"

Then, saved it and restart my apache2.

I got the following error message when trying to open the page

You don't have permission to access / on this server

I have checked the file permission of the directory myothersite and they are apache:nogroup

I'm at a loss - I don't know what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

In ubuntu/debian the vhosts in apache are defined using files under /etc/apache2/sites-available/
Have a look here to see how it's bone
