Hi, I have looked at the fix and dont know where to find it. Just where is the place this fix goes? Is it in Dreamweaver, my host, on the www, I just dont know where to input the simple solution, please help.

I have pasted the help offered below:


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

Apache/1.3.9 Server at Port 80

This error indicates that a default document could not be found at the specified URL and that directory listings are not permitted.
The solution
The solution is quite simple. Edit /usr/local/etc/apache/httpd.conf and look for the following line:

DirectoryIndex index.html

This line indicates that if a URL does not contain an explicit filename, then the files specified on this line will be used by default. So if you are using index.htm, or default.htm as your default page, add them to this line. For example:

DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm default.htm
