httpd: you don't have permission to access

i have httpd installed on RHEL5 webserver

but i have linked

#ln -s /rhelREPO /var/www/html/rhel5

/rhelREPO contains all 5cds of RHEL and it is a mount of /dev/sdb1

ip: :works /var/www/html/index.html content is in browser
ip: :does not work /var/www/html/rhel5/

You don't have permission to access /rhel5 on this server.

i have changed

</directory />

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks # i added Indexes
AllowOverride None

# i added next two line thinking it will work since the /rhelREPO is in / (root)

Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory >

</directory "/var/www/html">

Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

</Directory >

why is the directory not being indexed...

Normal permissions on the rhel5 directory; apache needs to have read permission on it.
Seeing that it's RHEL, it might be SELinux that does not allow access. I had a similar problem; see
