Apache FIX: Forbidden/You don’t have permission to access / on this server
Check the permissions of the folder. Usually its a chmod problem and you can change it to drwx–x–x. However another problem can be the conf/httpd.conf file. If you have an incorrect <Files > record that can cause problems also. Search for <Files ~>. If you find it then that’s your problem. Replace it with <Files ~ “^\.ht”> and restart Apache. That should fix the problem.
