You don't have permission to access /awstats/ on this server.

I'm trying to get Awstats to work with my LAMP stack. I followed a guide to configure it(Awstats Guide)

After configuring it I'm getting a "You don't have permission to access /awstats/ on this server."

So after a lot reading I ended up with this in the /etc/httpd/conf.d/awstats.conf:

Alias /awstatsclasses "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/classes/"
Alias /awstatscss "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/css/"
Alias /awstatsicons "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/icon/"
ScriptAlias /awstats/ "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin/"

<Directory "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot">
Options FollowSymLinks
Options ExecCGI
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

I also created the /etc/awstats/ for a virtualhost, changing the LogFile directory, SiteDomain, HostsAliases and AllowToUpdateStatsFromBrowser options.

I've tried a lot of fixes but none of them worked .I think it's a problem with being able to execute cgi scripts.

The <Directory "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot"> was wrong, changed to <Directory "/usr/share/awstats/wwwroot/cgi-bin"> and I can now access it from the web.

Icons are missing tho.
