I was getting a permissions error upon accessing etc, until I also included:

<Directory "/Users/username/project/">
Options Indexes MultiViews Includes
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
Allow from all

in my httpd.conf file, in addition the code in the book:

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/Users/username/project/publisher"
<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot "/Users/username/project/widget"

I'm new to this, and this change fixed it. Perhaps you could shed light on what happened.

Re: 2.1.3 Forbidden 403 Error
You're right. Depending on your Apache configuration, you may need to additionally specify <Directory> directives for those paths.

On my OS X machine, which had a basic Apache configuration in place, some default rules were already in place.
