the issue was that apache was giving forbidden error when trying to
access his app and the solution was to give apache the permissions. This
is a very common issue in fedora/redhat/centos/ where the default for
most directories under / is not to give execute permission to all. This
error was further compounded by him putting his app under /root which is
usually more heavily protected than most directories.
