Changing Document Root causes Access Forbidden

Postby ryanzor » 14. February 2014 15:36

I tried the suggestions here: http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=3586&highlight=directory and in a few other places to change the root directory of my xampp install to not be htdocs. Whenever I do change it I get Access Forbidden. I've tried changing the parameters in the directory as was suggested elsewhere to something like Require all granted, but this just resulted in a server error.

Any help is appeciated.
