Dear Experts,

I have two questions  for my apache Centos6 VPS server with root access, please advise
I try to setup my own error.html for 404. But when include or NOT-include  "ErrorDocument 404 /error.html" in my .htaccess file, whatever both methods will  also go to error.html page when try to go to my testing site at http://mysite.com/store/no-this-file.html  on browser(which is not existing on the store directory that just for  testing). So somehow, I let it worked before or long time ago.
I can NOT remember where or when  I made the error.html page forward work, Besides error page forwards is enabled(ErrorDocument 404 /error.html) in .htacess file, where else apache server can make it  possible.I check /usr/local/apache/htdocs/, there is no any .htaccess

When I  go to check the httpd.conf file at /etc/httpd/conf/, there is NO any about error document handle stuff

.htaccess file
ErrorDocument 404 /error.html
order deny,allow
deny from all

If I try to go to directory such as http://mysite/store on browser , it will show out
404 forbidden page, I want to know where is the forbidden page is located on my
apache Centos VPS server, I try to find it at /usr/local/apache, nothing find.
Where is the fobidden page located  ? because I want to do some css on it.

Fobidden page:

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

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
