Fix 403 Forbidden error in OTRS/Apache

This applies to (at least) OTRS 2.2 on Fedora Core 6 running Apache 2:

To fix this, change the following in the file /etc/httpd/conf.c/otrs.conf
Find the line that reads “Deny from All”, and comment it out by placing a # at the beginning of the line.

Save the file.

Restart Apache

# service httpd restart

Now try browsing your webserver otrs from other machines, success!
