    After login in the stats folder no stats are shown but this error in error.log
    [Wed Jul 08 12:44:37 2009] [error] [client1.2.3.4] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: 
    Any Ideas why? It's a fresch ISPConfig installation and the webalizer files are produced in the stats folder. All stats folders are owned by root. This was differend in ISPConfig 2.

    It's a fresh install, so it could be that there are no stats files in that dir yet, thus the servers wants to show the dir contents in a list (dirlisting) which is not allowed .. so i'd say you're stats dir is empty and you've to wait until the cronjob creates the first stats for you :)

    u might try to make another folder with index file in it and see does it load it up? I would check .htaccess files and .vhost files becouse something is maybe geting override. U might want to try also to change site info in ispconfig so it remakes the .vhost file or try adding the

    <Directory "/path/to/dir">
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

    or try with this command

    DirectoryIndex index.html

    to force loading of that file before listing directory.

    Hope it helps
