Hmmm...If I place a very basic index.html file in the Apache document root
for the VHost and disable all rewrite rules, I can access the document just

If I re-enable the rewrite rules (either based on docs on the Plone site, or
on James' how-to) we go back to the "403" Forbidden error. When this
happens, the error log for the VHost shows:

"[Fri Nov 09 13:05:54 2007] [warn] proxy: No protocol handler was valid for
the URL /index.html. If you are using a DSO version of mod_proxy, make sure
the proxy submodules are included in the configuration using LoadModule."

I've enabled mod_proxy_html and mod_proxy_connect:

     PROXY=on "Enable mod_proxy"
     PROXY_CONNECT=on "Enable mod_proxy_connect"
     PROXY_FTP=off "Enable mod_proxy_ftp"
     PROXY_HTTP=on "Enable mod_proxy_http"
     PROXY_AJP=off "Enable mod_proxy_ajp"
     PROXY_BALANCER=off "Enable mod_proxy_balancer"

but the problem remains.

Other ideas, anyone?
