Apache configuration


I've installed apache with php under Ubuntu 10.10. I need to change the DocumentRoot to a directory other than /var/www/ which is the default, but I get "Forbidden" message.

With /var/www/ everything is ok, I can also copy web directories to it and execute php codes, but it doesn't work at all for the other address, say /media/drive2/.

I even set permissions for /media/drive2/htdocs/ and all of it's children to 777(!) but I still get the same "forbidden" error.

Please help!
