403 Forbidden (6 posts)

    Help! I upgraded to WordPress 1.5. Everything worked fine until I tried to set up my own theme. Now I'm getting a 403 Forbidden message. I've deleted the theme that I tried to use before the 403 Forbidden message would occur hoping that I could at least access the blog and then use a test page to figure out the problem. No such luck. I still get the forbidden message. I have tried deleting the .htaccess file but it doesn't seem to want to delete.

    Can anyone help me?

    " I have tried deleting the .htaccess file but it doesn't seem to want to delete."

    How are you trying to do this exactly ?

    By clicking on it in the cpanel and then clicking delete file.

    Can you access you site through a FTP client and browse around? This maybe the best way of ensuring that you are deleting files.

    If you can access your site through FTP, create a simple index.php file which something like:


    <?php
    echo "Hello World";
    ?>

    and see if it at least works.

    Do you have a error_log file being created in your root directory or elsewhere?? That might give you a clue.

    Regards
