Support » Fixing WordPress » Pages give 403 error, tried solution in previous post

  • I tried recreating the .htaccess file as suggested in this page:

    However, it didn’t change anything. I realize I have already posted this as a comment in that topic, but I suspect most people assume it’s old news…so, sorry to double post this. I think it really is a separate problem.

    Here it is again:
    What about 403? I am getting 403 errors when I try to access my static pages.

    This is the error page:
    You don’t have permission to access /about/ on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I tried the above solution but it didn’t work. WordPress did create a new htaccess file, but I still get the error. I was getting these errors before with the comments, and changed the chmod permissions to fix it, but as these are virtual folders, I can’t do that. Any suggestions?

    Update>>I checked the CHMOD again to make sure all the templates are 666, and they are.

    You can see it happen at (Design is still wanky, sorry!)

  • I had this problem as well and I fixed it by adding:
    “Options +FollowSymLinks”
    to the .htaccess file.
    Also make sure none of your real folders have the same names as virtual folders.
    Finally, it helped _enormously_ to check the error log from the webserver.
