I have finally dug in and started witing my code on my development server.  In unzipped CI to my web root on my WAMP server, in a directory called tscs, I took the application folder out of the system folder. When I browse to my localhost directory/tscs/application/welcome.php I get the following ugly message:


You don’t have permission to access /tscs/application/welcome.php on this server.

What have I done wrong?  I’m just trying to get set up to do Hello World so I can start developing my site.  I know this is a real newbie question, I am a newbie, but I would greatly appreciate your guidance on helping me get up and running.

I went back and did a fresh install into a dummy directory on my local webroot.  I went into the view folder and added a little code to the welcome message view, and it works. Apparently my problem stems from my altering the directory structure.  I’ve been watching tuts and guess I didn’t pay close enough attention to what needed to be done.
