I have setup a drupal site in a centOS 6 EC2 instance configured with apache as the web server. The application works fine in /var/www/html directory(default). This application needs to be moved to /home/centos for development purposes. But the following error is seen when the root directory is pointed to /home/centos.
I also tried creating Symboliclink in /var/www/html pointing to the folder in /home/centos eventhough it couldnot be accessed by the browser.

You don't have permission to access /test1/ on this server.

does the user Apache is running as have rights to the /home/centos/-directory?
If you are using the symlink-version also ensure that symlinks are allowed within apache's config:
Options FollowSymLinks
