[FASTCGI] Apache forbidden access

I'm a newbie.

I have Apache22 and php5 working on Freebsd 6.3 and thought I'd give 
fastcgi a test.

I did a make config on php5 and made sure support for fastcgi was there.

|# /usr/local/bin/php-cgi -v 
PHP 5.2.8 with Suhosin-Patch (cgi-fcgi) (built: Mar  4 2009 17:12:49)
Copyright (c) 1997-2008 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.2.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2008 Zend Technologies

In httpd.conf I added:

||LoadModule fcgid_module libexec/apache22/mod_fcgid.so
|<IfModule mod_fcgid.c>
    AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi
    FCGIWrapper /usr/local/bin/php-cgi .php


<Directory "/usr/local/www/apache22/data">

    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    SetHandler fcgid-script
    FCGIWrapper /usr/local/bin/php-cgi .php
    Options ExecCGI
  Allow from all

Commented out:
|#LoadModule php5_module        libexec/apache22/libphp5.so

Restarted Apache and got an error on ||mod_fcgid.so.

Went to my ports and did a make install on |mod_fcgid.
This got rid of the error and apache restarted fine.

When I try see the existing index.php file with a web browser I get:

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

I comment out the fastcgi stuff and the server displays the page.
