Installation Problems

Hi all - I'm trying to install LJ and I'd appreciate any advice you could give me.

I followed the instructions for the install and have gotten to the point where checkconfig.pl is telling me everything is fine. However, when I try to access the main page or the admin/priv it gives me an 403 Forbidden error.

I am wondering whether this has to do with my Apache config or whether it might be because I installed in the public_html directory of the acct rather than into the base directory.

I'd really appreciate any suggestions!

One More Thing

I just discovered that when I manually navigate to the htdocs (they don't automatically load from the siteroot), the BML isn't being parsed. Does the installation not include an installation of BML? Any idea how I might go about getting BML installed?

Thanks again!
