Have you configured Apache to allow reading of /nfsfarm1? By default,
Apache is configured very restrictively, so that it can only access
those areas of the hard drive that an administrator has deemed
necessary. For example, Apache is probably configured to allow you to
read out of /var/www.

Look in your httpd.conf for sections like this:

# Each directory to which Apache has access can be configured with
# to which services and features are allowed and/or disabled in that
# directory (and its subdirectories).
# First, we configure the "default" to be a very restrictive set of
# features.
<Directory />
     Options FollowSymLinks
     AllowOverride None
     Order deny,allow
     Deny from all

# Note that from this point forward you must specifically allow
# particular features to be enabled - so if something's not working as
# you might expect, make sure that you have specifically enabled it
# below.

# This should be changed to whatever you set DocumentRoot to.
<Directory "/var/www">
     # Possible values for the Options directive are "None", "All",
     # or any combination of:
     # Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI
     # Note that "MultiViews" must be named *explicitly* --- "Options
     # doesn't give it to you.
     # The Options directive is both complicated and important.
Please see
     # http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/core.html#options
     # for more information.
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks

     # AllowOverride controls what directives may be placed
in .htaccess files.
     # It can be "All", "None", or any combination of the keywords:
     # Options FileInfo AuthConfig Limit
     AllowOverride None

     # Controls who can get stuff from this server.
     Order allow,deny
     Allow from all
