    i get
    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /littlecuties/ on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    how do i remove this?
    (my website btw)

    I want it to display the directory
    it only works if i make it a index.html...
    I am using godaddy (domain + free hosting, with domain.)

    GoDaddy hosting? *shudder* Best contact them and ask what's up. My uneducated guess is that for some reason, your read-write permissions on the server for that folder are revoked, or damaged, or whatever. If it's a Unix server, it should be a simple permissions fix; if it's Windows...er...pray? :meh:

    Chances are you'll need to set up a .htaccess file which allows the directory to be read without an index file.

    Try creating or modifying a file in that directory called .htaccess and add the following directive:

    Or if that doesn't work, try:

    Save the file and try again. You will also need all-read privs on the directory that you're trying to link to.

    As to why your error document is giving you a 404, can't help you there.
