Hi,

I decided to give drupal a try on Fedora Core 5. 

After configuring apache and mysql and unpacking drupal I receive an error when visiting http://localhost

ERROR

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Looks like an issue with .htaccess ....

I used the default (unmodified) .htaccess provided with drupal.  Received the error.

Tried modifying .htaccess per http://www.howtoforge.com/forums/showthread.php?t=38

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
 RewriteEngine on
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
 RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
 RewriteRule ^(.*)$ /index.php?q=$1 [L,QSA]
</IfModule>

Same issue.
Perhaps I need to modify http.conf?  Perhaps I just need to sleep ..... :)

Suggestions welcome.

Cheers,

Doug
