I have several sites hosted and need to enable directory browsing on one of them.  I have edited the .htaccess file in the site directory as attached.  The 2nd snippet is the apache2.conf file.  There is nothing in the httpd.conf file.  After adding the +Indexes we have restart the server and still can't get any listing on our /newsletter directory, just says that we don't have permission.
DocumentRoot "/home/os01/www"
ServerName www.os01.us
<Directory "/home/os01/www">
allow from all
Options +Indexes
</Directory>
ServerAlias os01.us
IndexOptions FancyIndexing HTMLTable

ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

LockFile /var/lock/apache2/accept.lock

Does a index.htm or index.html exist at the document root?  If so, rename it.

Sorry didn't read the permission part, have you checked to make sure the directory has Apache permissions?

At the document root meaning the root of the site, or the root of the folder that we want to be able to browse.  The site root does have a index, but the /newsletter folder does not have any index file, just pdf's and folders.

Check the permissions in /newsletter directory
it must be an equal as apache user, and owner`s permissions are rwx in directory
Example:

drwxr-xr-x 11 apache apache  504 Aug 7  2010 roundcube

Content within the newsletters directory has same:
drwxrwxr-x 3 root root 4096 2009-10-28 12:05 Det News 1997

. htaccess needs to add the settings without changing the global server configuration.
