Two things:

You could try using more decriptive titles for your threads in future. Your title gives us absolutely no information at all.

When you say you installed all the webserver options, what does that mean? Have you configured them and created users with access to them? How have you set them up? Which directories are you trying to access?

More information helps us to help you.

Please be careful about the language you use. Offensive language is not accepted here.

You probably need to change permissions of the files (using graphical tools or from console). From console to make all the files readable you'd need to type (when you're in the directory with your files)
chmod a+r *
It'll make all the files readable.
