[resolved] Permissions for wp-admin (5 posts)

    What should the permissions be set to for the /wp-admin/ folder?

    When I try to access my dashboard I'm getting the error:

    Forbidden

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

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

    This started after I updated to the latest version. I have tried a manual reinstall.

    Folders should be 755, files should be 644

    Also, are you sure you have uploaded all the files ?

    I've done it multiple times, so all files should be there. Is there a list somewhere I can compare it to?

    I also double checked the permissions, and they are set correctly.

    Hmmm...

    After putzing around with it, and then reuploading the wordpress files again, it seems to be working.

    Trial Beyond Compare , an excellant tool for comparing files/folders, and you can do it 'Local' <--> 'Remote' (your website)
