Support » Fixing WordPress » Intermittent 403

  • I am experiencing intermittent 403 errors and I can’t for the life of me figure out why.

    My .htaccess is default:
    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]

    # END WordPress

    My virtual host is:
    <Directory “D:/WebServer/”>
    AllowOverride all
    Options All -Includes -ExecCGI +MultiViews -Indexes
    Allow from all

    I already tried enabling indexes and setting a DirectoryIndex but then I just get intermittent directory listings.

    The error message says:
    [Tue May 17 03:24:18 2011] [error] [client IP] Directory index forbidden by Options directive: D:/WebServer/

    I thought this might be related to Super Cache so I disabled it for a while but I still got 403s.

    Does anyone have any ideas why this might be happening?

    I just moved this WordPress instances from a Mac box to Windows Server. I also updated the version, plugins, and added Super Cache while I was at it. I just made this live to the public – didn’t notice these issues in beta but that could be for lack of users. It doesn’t happen that often.
