I've been searching for an answer to this and haven't found it. So if it's here already, sorry.
I followed instructions carefully. In fact, I got the same outcome earlier, deleted everything and started over from scratch. Same result.
When I try to log on to admin - or just go to the index - I get the following page - titled 403 Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /blog/wp-admin/ on this server.
Apache/2.2 Server at http://www.smartstorming.com Port 80
I assume this happens to others. Can anyone tell me how to fix?
