I could be a permissions problem, in that your webserver's root directory is not visible to the public.
Do you have an index file? What's the output of this command?

grep -ri DocumentRoot /etc/httpd
I installed everything right but when I access my ip (domain) the message
403 forbidden. Anyone know what this is?
nginx appears in the log:

03/10/2013 15:23:44 [error] 5129 # 0: * 1 directory index of "/ var / www / my_app / public /" is forbidden, client: IP, server:, request: "GET / HTTP/1.0", host: "IP"
@Arthur: Do you have an index file in /var/www/my_app/public?
I am also getting same problem.
When i ran grep -ri DocumentRoot /etc/httpd
I got /etc/httpd: No such file or directory
My app is located at /home/uvarsity
index file is not located in /home/uvarsity/public
