Default AWstats problems


I have in the last few days tried to get awstats up and running on my
gentoo box but without any luck.

I have emerge awstats without any problems and added this to my apache
configuration (/etc/apache/httpd.conf)

#AWStats configuration
Alias /awstatsclasses "/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/htdocs/

Alias /awstatscss "/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/htdocs/css/"
Alias /awstatsicons "/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/htdocs/icon/"
ScriptAlias /awstats/ "/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/htdocs/cgi-

<Directory "/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/hostroot/cgi-bin/">
Options +ExecCGI +FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride None
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

<Directory /usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r1/htdocs/s>
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

Include /etc/apache2/awstats.conf

I have added this to my vhost file

CustomLog /var/log/apache2/www.testsite.test/access_log combined

and restarted my apache server.

I can run

/usr/share/webapps/awstats/6.9-r/hostroot/cgi-bin/awstats.pl -config=www.testsite.test

and it seem to perform the operation fine...

The problem occurs when I try to view awstats in my browser:


Then I get a http 403 error:


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

I have tried a lot of guides and howto after browsing google, but non
of them seems to do the final trick of letting me access awstats

Do anyone know of a solution to the 403 error or a reference to a up-
to-date guide on how to setup awstats on gentoo.
