    Hello all - I just finished installing Word Press 2.2 and am now receiving a Forbidden message when I log in as the admin. The below is the error message I was receiving.

    Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /wp-admin/index-extra.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    try disabling mod_security, and see if that helps..

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    create a text file on your desktop:

    put the following inside it:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off
    </IfModule>

    save the file.

    Upload the file to your wp-admin directory.

    Rename the uploaded file to .htaccess (with the .)

    IF YOU DO HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    Edit it:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off
    </IfModule>

    save the new .htaccess
