i think i made a mistake !

on my root folder under apache web server, i give the permisseion to the computer name only. so now no one including me or the admin can open the folder! and i got (forbedden access) when trying to access localhost or my webpage under apache

is there any way to restore previous permissions ?

As an administrator, take ownership of the folder first, then you can reset the permissions. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc753659.aspx

Thanks it works! i could now open the folder but still can't access all the sub folders, also can't access localhost or my webpage. do i need to take ownership of all sub folders and files? –  Oxi Jun 20 '12 at 23:06
