[resolved] You don't have permission to access localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/ (4 posts)

    Hi, all of a sudden I can't access the admin profile to continue building my offline WordPress site (localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/)

    It is a 403 Forbidden error: "You don't have permission to access localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/ on this server."

    As there is a permissions issue going on here, how do I overcome it? Is it something to do with .htaccess, wp-config.php or admin rights on my computer maybe?

    by the way, the contents of my .htaccess file is as follows:

    # BEGIN WordPress
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /wordpress2/
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /wordpress2/index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    # END WordPress

    OK, problem fixed, WAMP was offline. Doh! Confusing though as you need to start WAMP services AND put Online.
