If you get an “Error 403″ when you view a URL on our webservers, it means one of two things:
- You do not have an “index” file in your folder. For each folder you have, you must have an index.html, index.htm, index.shtml, index.php, or index.cgi file.
- Your CGI script does not have execute permissions. If you have a CGI script, you must ensure that the “ownership” is set such that “world” or “other” can execute it. Most FTP programs let you set these attributes via a “Get Info” or “Properties” interface. If you are a shell user, you can issue the following command:
chmod a+x filename
