  1. I have that problem when I try to connect google analytics with Google Analytics for WordPress by MonsterInsights, in the last step when it tries to connect to the site data, it gives me the error 403 forbidden nginx/1.16.0

  2. What if I can visit my website but the shop part gets error 403?

    All files and maps have correct permission as well.

  3. Hi, and thank you for your helpful tips! I have an issue which is so frustrating! Suddenly after getting a lot of site lockout notification emails, i saw my plugin section when I enter it shows all plugin but it is freezed, so i cant edit, add deactivate, push setting text, nothing is work there, how can i solve this appreciate your respond

  4. can this fix a fansite i visted and it worked before but now i see this ……….. Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /photos/ on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

  5. There is another thing that can cause this problem. If there is a file that shouldn't be there with the same name as an HTML page. It could be something left out of uninstalling or put there by installing a subdomain with the same name as an already existing sub-folder. You can't fix it till you delete or rename the folder.

  6. sorry you are not allowed to access this page This Problem Is Showing On My WordPress And I Cannot Acces And Login My WordPress Website . Please Help Me Im Worried

  7. this video is pure gold, i was messing around for hours changing the .htaccess and trying to find where it was going wrong, i followed your video and renamed it now my 403 error has gone! thank you

  8. That was a great and very clear video, but sadly didn't work for me. My host is slow to come back to me. I feel the only thing that could have done this is by updating to php7. But that was a week ago.

  9. not working for me, i cant save changes on existing pages, even can't preview (<site>/wp-admin/post.php) but only 10% of pages generate that error
