403 forbidden access on httpd service

sorry guys, i'm a newb.

I installed red hat 9.0 yesterday (fresh install over a new hd).

I had 8.0 before and i never remembered this being that hard.

heres what i did.

installed red hat 9.0 with httpd services and php.

i made sure httpd services is up and running.

I edited httpd.conf and php.ini

i restarted both apache and httpd services.

I went to another networked computer (i'm on a router).

typed my domain name in the web browser, it brought up the standard apache welcome page.

then i went inside the www/html/ folder.

got rid of the folder inside called: usuage which only had two png image files.

i put an index.php ( i have tried index.htm , index.html also ).

the code i put in was:

<? phpinfo(); ?>

also tried <?php phpinfo(); ?>

neither works and all i see now is:

403 forbidden access. ( i did not change any permissions of any file or folder. All the permissions came default with teh installation)

thats what i get when i go to my website:

w w w . silversloth . c o m

can anyone help me out?

i have no idea what is wrong. I just ran the text book installation from cd.

i also configured my firewall during the installation to accept , ssh and http requests.

please help,

If you placed the index.php file there, make sure your permissions are correct, for others to read, etc.
