I have a strange problem when adding a sub-domain to our virtual server. I have done similar sub-domains before and they have worked fine.

When I try to access the sub-domain I get an 403 Forbidden error.

I checked the error logs and have the following error:

pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable

I've searched Google and could only find solutions regarding file and folder permissions, that I have checked and the solution isn't solved. I also saw problems with Frontpage Extensions, but that's not installed on the server.


Forgot to say that there isn't a .htaccess file in the directory of the sub-domain
