Question Web server permissions


I'm running the standard apache server under Red Hat 9. The HTTP server works fine in the main directory (eg. localhost/). But once I try to get into a directory in the main directory (eg. localhost/docs/), it wont let me have access. I've tried to set the directory chmod to everything between standard and 777. What's wrong? Please help!

Where do you have DocumentRoot set to? Look into httpd.conf.

So when you access localhost/docs, you access /var/www/html/docs. Is it the right directory?

Well.. yeah. I noticed the index.html is the only page I can view in the root too. Other files I dont have permission to view.. Thanks!
