Full Version: Why is all of my media coming up as Access forbidden!

I'm trying to build a web site available only on my local network to use as a media server. When I open the files in my browser to test them everything looks like it's working. But when I use a web address to view the site all of my media will not load, and if I look at the page source it says Access forbidden! for the files that should be there. This is the first time I've worked on a site that I hosted myself so it's probably something simple I'm missing.

Overambitious firewall?

It's all on a local network with all of the Windows and Linux firewalls turned off. Could my network firewall be blocking local traffic?

Sounds like the files have the wrong permissions ( see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_permissions ).

The problem was actually in apache. My media files are in linked directories and I had to add FollowSymLinks to 1 of the config files.
