I am using Apache2.2.22 on a Debian7 server. Hosting multiple websites, but have reduced it to just one for now to try to figure out this problem.
So, if I go to: www.mysite.com the website shows up. HOWEVER, if I go to just: mysite.com from outside our company network, I get the error "Forbidden. You don't have permission to access / on this server."
From inside the company network, however, it works fine. Here is the only file in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled
allow from all
# This directive allows us to have apache2's default start page
# in /apache2-default/, but still have / go to the right place
#RedirectMatch ^/$ /apache2-default/
