I've set up my wiki-farm as below and wiki-drugfacts displays in the
browser, but wiki-tgmeds is failing to display saying this -

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
http://localhost/wiki-tgmeds/index.php/Main_Page

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access /wiki-tgmeds/index.php/Main_Page on this server.
Apache/2.4.25 (Debian) Server at localhost Port 80
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

So how can I get it to display properly please?

Thanks
Sharon.
