[Resolved] 403 Forbidden Error on whole blog!

  • Ok guys, I give up! Been working on this and searching for 7 hours!

    I was on my blog site yesterday everything was perfect! I didn’t even post anything or nothing at all just viewed my site as always just to make sure it was working properly.

    Today I went to my site and I got this:

    Forbidden
    You don’t have permission to access / on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.33 Server at AppStuff Port 80

    So I have searched and searched. I have tried everything!
    Permissions are correct: 755 on folders, 644 on files.

    I even have another blog (different domain) that is also hosted on this same hosting account and within the same file manager. It is working perfect! I even compared a few of the files. Everything is the same!

    I then came across the .httaccess files:

    # BEGIN WordPress

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    Both blog’s .httaccess files are the same!

    What I know:
    1. It isn’t my hosting provider as I have another blog on this hosting account that is in the same file manager and everything is the same.
    2. It isn’t the .httaccess as they are the same compared to the working blog.
    3. It isn’t the permissions as the files are 644 and the folders 755

    Please help, I get the same 403 forbidden error when I go to the wp-admin.php and wp-login.php and any other part of this blog.

    Link please. That would make it easier to see what’s going on.

    i think you mean here.

    http://blog.massivemass.com

    1. what do the server logs say?

    2. what is the name of the directory that that subdomain blog is pointed to?
    3. have you checked that that is still correct?
    4. what are the permissions of that directory?
    5. who is the owner of that directory?

    Yes, Don’t have any server logs…

    I own the directory. It has worked fine, the directory folder is set at 755 all files are set at 644. Everything has been working, was working yesterday. I just experienced this today and I haven’t changed anything, I haven’t even logged in since a week ago.

    the blog subdomain points to a site on godaddy.

    Right, something has just automatically happened by itself to cause this 403 forbidden error. Something has had to happened here. I just can’t figure it out.

    Permissions on the main directory is 705

    godaddy doesnt provide access to logs? since when?

    2. what is the name of the directory that that subdomain blog is pointed to?

    have you looked at the dns entries for for your domain lately?

    Non-authoritative answer:
    Name: blog.massivemass.com
    Address: 68.178.254.22

    Non-authoritative answer:
    http://www.massivemass.com canonical name = massivemass.com.
    Name: massivemass.com
    Address: 208.109.181.231

    What is the name of the directory that the subdomain blog is mapped to? And why do those have different IPs?

    good point…let me check

    What would cause these to have different ips? These are both hosted under the same hosting account.

    Sorry, I have had the same problem with tecno.ridagold.com.ar. Moreover, I don’t receive the 403 error, just a message (in spanish) “I am not alowed to access the page” in the URL tecno.ridagold.com.ar/wp-admin/, after entering the correct user and pass.
    I had a couple of times the same error with another blog (www.ricardoblog.com.ar) and have to install it from scratch in order to revive the blog. It always happened after trying to activate a plugin, except that not always is the same plugin. The last time was with MiniMeta plugin.
    Thank you for your support

    I haven’t installed anything, I haven’t even posted anything, I haven’t even logged into my wp-admin in about a week. I was on my own site yesterday to be exact and everything was fine. Today I get this 403 forbidden error? What gives?

    Still giving me a headache, I going to bed, will log back on here tomorrow I have been on this issue for 8+ hours now. Hopefully someone knows what is going on.

    I can’t access anything of my wordpress blog. I get a 403 forbidden error on every thing I try to access on this blog.

    Odd to say just *Poof* something magically destroys your blog over night.

    What would cause these to have different ips? These are both hosted under the same hosting account.

    thats something you need to ask your host.

    Stop with the drama. Less whining and more answers.

    What is the name of the directory that the subdomain blog is mapped to?

    thats the third time.
