You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
How do I enable permission access? Please help

I'm assuming apache web server.
The apache user doesn't have read and execute (enter) status on the directory. To add it: chmod +rx /path/to/web/root Sometimes this happens when apache doesn't own the directory. chown apache:apache /path/to/web/root makes apache own the directory.
(/path/to/web/root is where you put your web documents, typically /var/www/html)

No problem. A webserver is one of the more useful things to do with Fedora. :)
