problem with apache after installing php

after installing php on my PC, i received the following error when i tried to get to http:\localhost

You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Apache/2.0.54(Win 32) PHP/5.1.0b2
Server at localhost Port 80

how do i rectify it?


  • This is exactly as it says. You've probably turned off directory listings, and not given read permission to the folder, so it can't be displayed to the user. Basically, it's a permissions problem. Try putting a 'index.html' in the folder, and you should find that the error disappears.

  • : You've probably turned off directory listings

    or you have forgotten to set a valid DocumentRoot. AFAIK '/' is the default value for this setting and that won't work an a Windoze system
