Moving the www.

I've changed the DocumentRoot "${INSTALL_DIR}/www" line in the httpd-vhosts.conf file to my own path and unfortunately I'm getting a 403 error now. What else do I need to do to move the www directory to another partition?

The VirtualHost localhost must remain as it is and never be modified!

You must create and use your own VirtualHost which can be anywhere.
