Apache2 Document Root change produces 403 error

Hi folks,

When I change /etc/apache2/apache2.conf and /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf from /var/www/html to /home/wayfarer51/www I invariably get a 403 - Forbidden error in Firefox after running sudo service apache2 restart.

This the from /var/log/apache2/error.log

Code: Select all

:
[Sun Jul 05 22:59:06.385560 2020] [core:error] [pid 19120] (13)
Permission denied: [client 127.0.0.1:58940] AH00035: access 
to / denied (filesystem path '/home/wayfarer51/www') 
because search permissions are missing on a component of the path
I have no idea what that means. I've been using LM for about 3 weeks and had a WAMP installed painlessly on Win10. Will you help me?

Thanks.
