    403 means its pointing to a physical folder wrongly. You are using LiteSpeed Web Server, not Apache or Nginx.

    LiteSpeed Web Server is a paid software, if even following the right way does not solve the issue, there will probably be no support from regular WordPress volunteers. You have to ask your webhost to solve. WordPress uses GPL V2.0 License. The modules are different in each web server software and LiteSpeed Web Server is rarely used.

    Hi Abhishek,

    The webhost was “able to find the culprit in the database” and fixed it. Now I’m experiencing something quite baffling on the site.

    All of the content in the top nav menu, left sidebar and main content is backwards. For example, if you visit this web page, you’ll notice the following:

    a. The top navigation links are backwards — the Home link ought to be listed 1st, About 2nd, …
    b. The left sidebar icons and links are backwards — the icons ought to be on the left and the icons on the right
    c. The main content on all pages are backwards — the listed items show the items 1st and the numbers last.

    Have you ever seen anything like this? Can you help me fix it?

    I fixed it after changing the doc declaration to:

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN”
    “http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd”>

    Yesterday I’d added an older doc declaration which caused the backwards content issue.
