Question Unable to add directory named catalog

We would like to have a directory with the name catalog

We have added the directory and files, checked the permissions, but when we go to that directory, we get a forbidden message. If we create any other name such as test with the same files and the same permissions, it works fine. We have seen other websites using apache and this name, so it doesn't appear to be a keyword.

this is on RH 7.3, Apache 1.3.27

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Adding the following on httpd.conf may help:

<Directory full-path-of-catalog>
Options Indexes Includes

I found the answer. We had a directory directive in the httpd.conf file that had
<Directory ~ log >
Order Allow, Deny
That was blocking access to all directories underneath the root directory with log (i.e., catalog)
