Total Newbie. Just installed WebMatrix on Windows 8. The saple site that comes with WebMatirx runs fine from the folder in MyDocs. But when I set up a new site, and tried to run it I got " HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden "
The Info on the 403.14 page suggested I run appcmd set config /section:system.webServer/directoryBrowse /enabled:true and
appcmd set config ["SITE_NAME"] /section:system.webServer/directoryBrowse /enabled:true
What do I need to do to get the file to run in the way the above instructions require?

It looks like you do not have ebough permission on the new site folder. Please kindly check it out.
Just for testing, you can simply place a blank HTML file on your new site and check whether you can access this site. If not, this means that your site itself has setup issue and this has nothing to do with the WebMatrix tool
Please mark this response as an "answer" if it helps you. Thanks heaps!
