Hey Eric, I appreciate the help! Here's what I have, though it is transcribed.

Set locally required limited OS access.

	<Directory />
	  Options None
	  Order deny,allow
	  Deny from all

We use Apache as a yum repo, and store the rpms outside of the DocumentRoot.

	Alias "/rhel/updates" "/opt/repository/rhel_patch_updates"
	<Directory "/opt/repository/rhel_patch_updates">
	  Options All
	  Order allow,deny
	  Allow from all

When we hit 'http://myserver/rhel/updates' the error_log says it is denied by server configuration. I've set the LogLevel to "debug" and that's all I get. The log is at work, sorry. I'm the one who did the server configuration so my bet is "operator error", just not sure how to fix it.

Appreciate any help you can provide. Thanks!
