Apache and no eownload


Hey and thank you for the help.

I have recently been asked to put some stuff up on our apache web server and unforunatly have little knowledge of how apache works. I have made a link to a download page and the download page works. All pages are php scripts. I have the download files in the right place and I have double checked the file location. However, I get
Code:
Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /download/packages/xcms_hl.tar.gz on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.0.49 (Linux/SuSE) Server at metlin.scripps.edu Port 80
is there some allow.conf ? or something like that, that I need to add the download files to. There is one more thing, the files are really big, like 20Gb. I know !

cheers,

PB

Ps I have done a quick google but with no real luck, happy to look at a good page if someone has one. Thanks

files are set to 744, and I've made sure the user and group are the same as the other downloadable files.

Oh and I know I spelled download wrong opps

Ok I got it apache doesn't want to let a file that big be downloaded
I think it's cannot let it be downloaded! So I'm just going to split the file and make like 20 parts or something.
