Apache2 - Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible

I usually map my DocumentRoot to my Eclipse workspace to simplify testing on my projects, but tonight, I wasn't able to get that mapping to work... Here was the error:

[Sat Jul 31 20:41:28 2010] [error] [client 127.0.0.1] Symbolic link not allowed or link target not accessible: /home/myhome/Documents

The fix is to change the Group directive from:

#Group ${APACHE_RUN_GROUP}
Group myusergroup

And, restart Apache.
