Whats this Lie-nix Thing?

Ive been trying to set up a namevirtualhost just as a project running on my own computer, ive altered my hosts file which
looks like this localhost.localdomain localhost

then i added to the httpd.conf

DocumentRoot /home/peta/web
<Directory /home/peta/web>
Order allow, deny
Allow from all

I have an index file in the above document root.

When i type in the address into the browser i get an error msg
saying i dont have permission to access /

it dont seem to matter where i define the document root for the virtual host
...i always get the same message.. plus defining a namevirtual host seems to
stop me accessing any file ...i get the same msg even for the localhost but
soon as i comment out the namevirtualhost directives the localhost works

thanks chris

what are you trying to access as the index page....
a perl file.....cgi-file, php file or a regular index.html page?

the acces denied error is cause by not having
the proper permissions set on the root directory of
the www set properly.....

what are the permissions set at on the htdocs folder
and what user/group is your webserver running as?
