Website denied?
Hi I have received the following message to a web page i really like and need for my business! :(

"Forbidden, perhaps you need to change the file permissions for this document or upload an index page"

Any help very much appriciated :D Thanks

sounds like it could be a problem on their end. looks like their permissions got switched around on the index page. do you have a cached page of theirs to look at to get contact info? what site is it? just wanna see if it happens to me too.

the problem is not with your computer, the problem is on their server. It is likely they uploaded a new file to their server and forgot to set the permissions of the file that anybody can read it. They will likely realize their problem soon and fix it, otherwise if you have receieved any e-mail from them you should use that e-mail to contact them and inform them that their permissions are set wrong on their index page.
