    This is my first time installing it. I have FTP all files into my web server and have edited the wp-config.php file to reflect the database, host, password etc as shown in my Cpanel. I thought that was the only thing I needed to do. When I type my web address, I get the forbidden messange on the browser. What I am missing? Is there anything else beside modifying the wp-config file?
    Please advise

    I did all the steps but is not working when I try to run the WordPress installation script by accessing wp-admin/install.php in a web browser.
    I don't know why I am stuck

    Set the main directory (WordPress dir) permission to chmod 775 and install.php permission to chmod 777 and try again.
