Hi Melissa,

It looks like directory indexing is turned off for that directrory, so
you get a permission denied error instead of a list of directory
contents. You'll probably find that if you tack a filename onto that URL
you won't get a 403 (try /gsdl/cgi-bin/gsdlsite.cfg).

In any case, if your greenstone installation is set up correctly, the
URL to the library should be /cgi-bin/gsdl/library (note the order of
'gsdl' and 'cgi-bin' are swapped). Try typing that URL and see what
happens. If you have trouble, see this section of this wiki document:
http://wiki.greenstone.org/wiki/index.php/Install_GSDL_from_SVN_in_Linux#4._Tell_apache_about_greenstone

Kind Regards,
Oran.
