Deployed Angular web app keeps getting "You do not have permission to view this directory or page."

I deployed an Angular app to Azure using VS Code.
I added a web.config and made sure it was deployed, but still I keep getting 'You do not have permission to view this directory or page'.
The app works fine locally and the deployment was successful.
What am I doing wrong?

    Thanks for asking question! Just to confirm in your Application Settings if you have any of the files sited here in the /home/site/wwwroot folder? If not, this could be a reason for this error. If so, recommend you go to your app service, under settings Click Configuration > Path mappings > You will see "Virtual applications and directories". Your virtual path should be "/" and physical path should be "site/wwwroot/" Change your Physical path to "site/wwwroot/'appname'" "appname" should be whatever the name of your application is. Or it should be whatever folder is inside of your "dist".
