The WP control panel said my backup directory was visible and I needed to move my htaccess.txt file to /.htaccess
So I did that.. I thought I was doing what it asked (later discovered it’s not what I was supposed to do). I made a directory called .htaccess and then moved the htaccess.txt file (located in: /public_html/<Website URL>/wp-content/plugins/wp-dbmanager/) to the newly created directory.
It screwed up my site and now it says 403 Forbidden. So I reversed it. I moved the htaccess.txt file back to where it was then deleted the .htaccess directory I created (reversing everything I did).
The website still doesn’t work. It’s still 403 Forbidden.
