not sure if this is the right forum, but seemed the best place :)
i want to make one "pub" folder on my site viewable, since i travel a lot and would like to put certain files in there for easy access.
i'm assuming i need to create a custom .htaccess file for that directory, so i dont get the "forbidden" message, but have no idea how to do this
any help would be appreciated :)

Hello Raynor, welcome to WebmasterWorld.
Could you perhaps explain what you mean? Are you talking about enabling directory listings? If so, put
into that directory's .htaccess

hmm, my server didnt seem to like that :(
i'm guessing it's disabled somewhere?
heres the .htaccess in my root
IndexIgnore .htaccess */.?* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*
<Limit GET POST>
deny from all
allow from all
<Limit PUT DELETE>
deny from all
would that stop me?

No. Instructions in a .htaccess-file should override instructions in a .htaccess in a higher directory. You did put the 'options +indexes' in a .htaccess in the directory you want to see the listing of?
Here's the official documentation:
[httpd.apache.org ] and

yes, i put the .htaccess file in the directory i want to see, but it just gives me an "Internal Server Error"
