HTTP server trouble in Mandrake 9.1

'evening all!

httpd is being rude - I'm developing a website on my local machine, it resides in my home directory, and I symlinked it into /var/www/html. This worked fine in Mandrake 9.0 but in 9.1 all I get is HTTP 403: Forbidden whenever I try to access it through a browser. I've checked the permissions for the files, the security level is set to standard, I'm stuck! Any help would be much appriciated!

Check the permissions on the directories too - they will need to be readable by everyone or the user that httpd runs as.

Rather than using symlinks it may be better to use apaches inbuilt aliasing directive. There is usually one in the config file for the icons directory, copy that and change the values.
