Backup Guard
[resolved] [Plugin: Backup] 403 Forbidden after install (4 posts)

    Just installed this plugin on a freshly created blog. Already installed half a dozen with no issues.

    As soon as I installed this one, I'm getting 403 Forbidden errors for the whole site. It's a subdomain, and the other subdomains and websites still work - just this blog which is down.

    Any ideas?

    Never mind! Deleted the .htaccess file and I have access again. Second install attempt was fine.

    Thank you! This resolved my same issue I had too. I deleted (actually, renamed to htaccess.txt.bu) my .htaccess file in the root of WP install. I was also using WP as a subdomain.

    BTW, I also previously tried commenting (adding # before each line) the 2 lines of the .htaccess file out, but that didn't resolve it. I had to remove the file.
