Why can't I get a directory listing when I use HTTPS?

Hi all,

I've just successfully installed an SSL certificate on my server (I get no reboot errors when I restart apache2 server and also when I type in the URL with the https I can see the green lock symbol which I can click and see corresponds to my certificate).

The problem is that when I use the https protocol I get an error:
https://www.mifujiclark.com/
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access / on this server.

When I use the http protocol I get the right page:
http://www.mifujiclark.com


What am I doing wrong here?

thanks in advance.


P.S. Here is my site's conf file from the apache2 sites enabled folder:
# domain: mifujiclark.com
# public: /home/myfolder/public/mifujiclark.com/public
