You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.

Postby lonrot » Fri Dec 08, 2006 3:47 am

Code: Select all

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.


Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.37 Server at ps3.cultureofgaming.com Port 80


Suddenly this message appeared when I tried to browse my site this morning, I can't access the main site, neither the administration.

Everything was in order last time I checked the site, from this point of view I'm unable to know the source of the problem.

Did you recently turn on SEO/SEF Search Engine Friendly URLs in the Joomla! Admin or install an SEF extension?

You might want to try Joomla Diagnostics http://extensions.joomla.org/component/option,com_mtree/task,viewlink/link_id,1146/Itemid,99999999/,  it is a really useful tool to check that all of the files have been correctly uploaded http://forum.joomla.org/index.php/topic,53052.0.html

Thanks Wizzie I uploaded the diagnostic tool, but the following messange will appear, it's exactly the same error.

Code: Select all

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /diagnostics.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

It sounds more like a problem relating to server permissions or ownership. Are you on your own server or a shared environment? Have you or your hosting provider made any changes or done any upgrades recently? You might also want to check or get your hosting provider to check the sub-domain config.

Wizzie, I contacted the support team of my hosting provider, they told me that the .htaccess messed up and they fixed the problem. No wonder what caused the issue.

Take care.
