My b2evolution Version: 1.9.x

The Apache brainteaser of the day...
Q: Why is the /docs directory of my b2evolution install coming up 403 Forbidden? The permissions are correct, I SWEAR!!!
A: My httpd.conf (apache config file) has this in it,

# Allow access to local system documentation from localhost
Alias /doc/ /usr/share/doc/
<Directory /usr/share/doc>
   order deny,allow
   deny from all
   allow from localhost .localdomain
   Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

Aha, that would do it. A peek at the logs verified this. Does anyone happen to know if that Alias is part of the default httpd.conf, or is it something my web hosting provider decided to add in there?

If it's the default, I would suggest renaming your /docs directory in future releases...
