    hello, i just switched from a free provider to a paid one (1and1). Before that my blog was working ok. The blog had previously no real content yet so i decided to just instal WordPress to the new provider (in a 'wp' folder this time, instead of roots). The installation was quite. So after that i decided to upload my Theme to the new place, and it seems there is a problem with the CSS file : when i try to check the CSS with Wed developer plugin for firefox, i have this message :

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
    <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en" lang="en"><head>
    <title>Error 403 - Forbidden</title>

    and when i try to validate the file i have this :
    I/O Error: http://www.myURLhere.com/wp/wp-content/themes/simple/style.css: Forbidden

    I can see the problem but have no idea how to fix it

    thanks for the help

    looks like you need to check the server permissions on all of your wp files, and the directories wp-content, wp-content/plugins, wp-content/themes, and wp-content/themes/yourTheme as well. i would at least set 755 (I would probably do 777...) for now just to be sure permissions aren't causing problems, then tighten them up later when everything works.
