Support » Fixing WordPress » Forbidden 403 Error, Apache Server at (mysite) Port 80

  • Everytime I try to save a plug-in settings a page comes up with the message:

    You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/options-general.php on this server.

    Apache Server at Port 80″

    I’ve tried changing the permissions for both the folder the .php is in and options-general.php itself. Nothing seems to work and it’s important that we get this website up and running asap.

    I hope one of you have a solution!

    Thanks in advance

    A 403 forbidden means that your browser isn’t able to load the scripts up because your server isn’t allowing it. This is a hard one to solve. Because anything could be blocking the server.
    – Most likely this is a server permissions/ownership issue, so ask your host what’s going on
    – Also, check your .htaccess files for anything strange.
    – Also try a full Manual Upgrade, to make sure all the WordPress files are there and correct.
    – – Make sure to backup everything (including database) before doing any action, in case.

    I have same problem with the latest version 3.9.1.

    Sometimes my users have successfull on LOgin and asomething NO.

    Seems as a aleatory problem due to any instability.

    Problem occur independently of browser in use : IE, Chrome or Firefox.

    Is there any way to solve this ?
    Thank You
