Support » Fixing WordPress » Error 403 Solution

  • Not sure if there is a solution posted here as I did a search and could not find it.
    I faced the error 403 problem when I try to login into my WP admin. Did a search at the forum and WIKI but found no solution.
    Look around my server and found the problem: .htaccess file located in my root directory:
    The default file pointed is index.htm
    I deleted the .htaccess and I am able to access the admin interface.
    – hope this helps! 🙂

  • Alternatively, if you need a .htaccess file in your root directory, you can create another .htaccess file in
    <wp-admin> directory to point to the index.php file.
    This will overwrite the .htaccess rule in the root directory.
    .htaccess if place in the root directory, will apply the rules to all the folders and sub-folders.
    Hence in my case, my root .htaccess points to index.htm file. in wp-admin directory, the same rules applys but index.htm is not presence hence cause the 403 error.
