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?

You get this error when you use which port? And do you use the IP address, the hostname of the server or the domain of a website as URL in the browser?

For now I'm using the ip number, but I originally found the problem when I had an external DNS service pointing to the server, so both things have been attemted.

I can fine connect to the ISPconfig admin pages with port 8000. It is when I try to connect to 1 vhost on port 80.

I'm just setting up the system, so I have only 1 vhost right now. But I have made more than 1, and even if i havent uploaded anything, you guys have made a general index file with some information so one knows that it is working. But it doesn't for me right now. :-(

1) Ensure that you selecetd the correct IP address in the website settings. If the IP dont show up, then add it under system > servr IP first.
2) the default vhost seems to be disabled on your server. Enable it with:

a2enmod default
/etc/init.d/apache2 restart

3) ensure that you access the sites by domain name and that the dns records of the domains point to the IP address of the site.

If I try to:

I get this error:

ERROR: Module default does not exist!
