Support » Plugin: Duplicator - WordPress Migration Plugin » [Plugin: Duplicator] Error 403 trying to run install.php – Windows hosting

    (@jmillerjmhmcom)


    I am trying to create a test environment. I created a brand new sub-domain and website for it, copied the install.php and the ZIP over to the root of the site, and then browsed to /install.php and I get an error 403. Am I missing something? If it makes any difference, my hosting company is Arvixe.com.

    Cancel this…it was incorrect permissions. I had to forcibly set the root permissions to re-inherit. Evidently the ZIP and install.php file permissions were copied from the site I am copying FROM. Great product!

    Hey Jeff,

    Good to know. In the upcoming versions I’m going to try to better alert on these types of issues.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hey Jeff,
    I am having the same problem and am relatively new to OSX/BASH
    How do I “forcibly set the root permissions to re-inherit.” ?

    Thanks!

    In my Hosting company I just ticked a permissions option to re-inherit in the cPanel. However, for Linux/Bash/OSX, you will probably need to use:
    chmod -R XXX (for whatever permissions level you want).

    -R will Recursively go through all subdirectories/files and set the same permissions.

    There is a video at the bottom of the User Guide that covers similar concepts for Linux systems…

    This is for a local environment to develop a theme…
    very strange – I am able to access installer.php no problem so I think my apache settings are correct. I then use phpmyadmin to create a database, root has all privileges, it runs correctly and then I get this:

    You don’t have permission to access /installer.php on this server.

    Any ideas?

    I suppose I could create a test subdomain on the remote hosting provider and use cPanel as described but would rather be able to develop locally.

    the 403 happens after I click Run Deployment…

    It probably an Apache directive that needs to be set… Googleing for: “You don’t have permission to access this server Apache” has some pretty good feeds… Here is one that looks promising:

    Hope that helps!

    Hi lifeinthegrid!

    I just transferred a site on another server but when I click on “save permalinks” I get 403 forbidden error.
    I’ve been reading it could be .htaccess issue (but the same site with same file is running on another server right now), or file permissions but directories are set to 705 and files 644..

    any idea? thanks in advance

    Try 755 temporarily at the root and have it set as -R (chmod -R 755 /). Once it is complete, you can more directly lock down permissions after it is up and running.

    thanks for you reply Jeff.
    I’ve set all folders to 755, but I still get 403.

    thanks for you reply Jeff!
    It was my server’s firewall that was blocking access.
