Apache, virtual host, access problem

I'm trying to set up two vhosts on my Apache 1.3.27 server. The first is the default one and it is working. When I try to reach the second one via I get 403 "You don't have permission to access / on this server".
Here is what I have in httpd.conf about vhosts:
NameVirtualHost *:8080

<VirtualHost *:8080>
ErrorLog /home/ivanatora/apache/error_log
CustomLog /home/ivanatora/apache/access_log custom
DocumentRoot /var/www/htdocs2/

<VirtualHost *:8080>
ErrorLog /home/ivanatora/apache/othervhost/error.log
CustomLog /home/ivanatora/apache/othervhost/acces.log combined
DocumentRoot /home/othervhost/html_root/
    <Directory /home/othervhost/html_root/>   
      order allow,deny
      allow from all
      AllowOverride All
The server is run with user 'ivanatora' and group 'users'. The /home/othervhost/ dir owner is user 'othervhost' and group 'users'. I've granted a+rw permissions to that dir, but this didn't solved the problem. I don't have any .htaccess file there. Some other ideas?

The apache server must have access to every part in thd Document path.

Your second host lies under
PLease check that each part her eis accesibla to th euser group:
If one of these fail (maybe /home/othervhost) Apache will not process the document sunderneeth this directory.

I solved the problem
I had to add
Options Indexes
for /home/othervhost/html_root/ dir
