Joomla Install via Fantastico - 403 Forbidden
Wierd. Anyone has this problem? I just signed up today. Installed Joomla for a try. But I get the "403 Forbidden" page when I attempt to assess both the forntpage of the site and the administrator page.
Also a message of
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.
Hmmm... Sent SG a ticket, they are looking into it now. Any help from forumers?
not too sure...
Maybe because your Public_html Top Level has no content, and joomla was created in a differant root folder?
Think Joomla is installed in the public_html folder so that shdn't be an issue. Thanks for your suggestion anyway.

Post a ticket and they will do it all for you!
They have been very helpful to me, installing joomla,
Any new on this issue?
I had it also with joomla 1.0.8 installations(upgrades) on different domains and it looks like it's a .htaccess problem. But I can't find what the exact problem is.
had to do with the .htaccess file and more into details:
comment out this line: Options FollowSymLinks
I signed up this morning and my Fantastico install of Joomla! had the same forbidden access problem.
I uninstalled via Fantastico and submitted a ticket. The SiteGround install works fine.
My .htaccess file appears to be empty!
When you have this problem, do the following:
1. Open the .htaccess inside your Joomla main folder
2. Delete ALL lines inside
3. You are done
I guess it's a silly question, but what is the htaccess file for?
I changed it's name to .htaccesdelete and the then the site worked fine.
Do i need to keep the file named .htaccess as is?
The .htaccess file is a system file handled by the Apache web server and has internal commands in it. Most commonly the .htaccess file is used to create redirections and rewrite rules with the Apache mod rewrite.
Joomla! uses .htaccess file for its SEF (search engines friendly links) functionality.
Sometimes, however, if you have components or other extensions installed they may not work well with the default rewrite rules specified in the .htaccess file.
I would advise you to post a ticket in your Help Desk if you experience such issues. We will check your particular case and do our best to solver the issue.
Or you are accessing your account directly through the server hostname. If so, add /~yourusername at the end of the URL to access your public_html folder.
