Default getting a "forbidden" error 403 when accessing any other page than ISPconfig panel.

I have searched high and low here and with google, and I'm about to give up.

I've installed the perfect server for ubuntu 12.04 LTS with ISPconfig3 which I also have on another server, and think it's awesome.

I'm getting the response "forbidden" no matter what page I'm trying to get served. I expect to get the "It works" or the welcome page you guys have custumized. Usually ISPconfig works right out of the box. I have changed the port for the control panel to 8000 instead of 8080, (and it took me a while to realize that it is necessary to open that port from within ISPconfig as well. Otherwise it is impossible to reach the control panel after a reboot).

And I've been looking in /var/log/apache2/error.log where I get this line for every attempt:
[Mon Aug 27 12:54:52 2012] [error] [client x.x.x.x] client denied by server configuration: /etc/apache2/htdocs

But there are no htdocs anywhere on the machine!?? So the info is of no help.

What am I missing?
