Forbidden error generally happens in Apache when you have not set right permissions for the directory( your document directory) OR the files inside (files should be readable by apache user:generally wwwrun)

Try accessing a single html file inside the directory rather thanusing the absolute path, u will get clearer picture. 

Last but not least /var/log/httpd/access.log!
