Error 403 Solution (2 posts)

    Not sure if there is a solution posted here as I did a search and could not find it.
    I faced the error 403 problem when I try to login into my WP admin. Did a search at the forum and WIKI but found no solution.
    Look around my server and found the problem: .htaccess file located in my root directory: http://soulworks.danielck.net
    The default file pointed is index.htm
    I deleted the .htaccess and I am able to access the admin interface.
    - hope this helps! :)

    Alternatively, if you need a .htaccess file in your root directory, you can create another .htaccess file in
    <wp-admin> directory to point to the index.php file.
    This will overwrite the .htaccess rule in the root directory.
    ----------------------------------
    .htaccess if place in the root directory, will apply the rules to all the folders and sub-folders.
    Hence in my case, my root .htaccess points to index.htm file. in wp-admin directory, the same rules applys but index.htm is not presence hence cause the 403 error.
