Forbidden - Permissions to Access podpress_backend.php - calculate length (3 posts)

    In Add Media element of a WordPress post, when we click the "Auto Detect" button to see length, it gives us this error:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN"> <html><head> <title>403 Forbidden</title> </head><body> <h1>Forbidden</h1> <p>You don't have permission to access /wp-content/plugins/podpress/podpress_backend.php on this server.</p> <hr> <address>Apache/2.0.54 Server at http://www.sscommunitychurch.com Port 80</address> </body></html>

    Also ... in preview mode on iTunes, our episodes are showing to be 1:01 long ... but when you click "get" ... they all come through and show the correct time after downloading?

    You don't have permission to access /wp-content/plugins/podpress/podpress_backend.php on this server.

    I have manually verified that the permissions for this file are fully readable, even writable and exectuable ... we've even tried it with 777 permissions?

    The permissions for this file should not be 777. It is okay if you set this value to 644.
    But your should make sure that the podPress folder (/wp-content/plugins/podpress/) has the right permissions. That folder should have 0755.

    iTunes shows 1:01 as the length of your episodes because the podcast feed contains for every of your recent episodes the duration: <itunes:duration>00:01:01</itunes:duration>. That is the default value which podPress uses if no valid duration value has been inserted in the insert field in the podPress box below the WP editor.
    In general, you don't have to use the auto detection function for the duration. You can simply insert the length in hours:minutes:seconds.
