Folder Access outside document root in apache

Say you have a folder with name "web" under /home

Give permission to that folder with the Apache user and group and under httpd.conf file add the below lines.

“Directories need to be executable by the Apache user, so that Apache can get listings of the files in the directory, and display the documents located in that directory”

Alias /web /home/web

Directory "/home/web">
Options Indexes SymLinksIfOwnerMatch IncludesNoExec
AllowOverride None
Allow from all
Order allow,deny
