?? pls help
Error 403 means that you have not configured the network path in httpd.conf correctly. You must create a <Directory M:/xing> ... </Directory> block and include a "Require all granted" statement. Same as for the standard DocumentRoot c:/xampp/htdocs. If you have an older Apache than version 2.4, you have to apply "Order Deny,Allow" and "Allow From All" instead of "Require all granted".
This is BASIC Apache knowledge, please google on yourself what Error 403 means.
