Error 403: Forbidden
You don't have permissions to access this page. This usually means one of the following:
this file and directory permissions make them unavailable from the Internet.
.htaccess contains instructions that prevent public access to this file or directory.
Please check file and directory permissions and .htaccess configuration if you are able to do this. Otherwise, request your webmaster to grant you access.
The file permissions on .htaccess is set to 666 as recommended this file is located in the root directory of the site tho as recommended if the wordpress folder is a sub dir.
CHMOD to 755 the folders as outlined here
and still no luck.
Can anyone please help.
