403 Forbidden

For security reasons, our servers will not allow browser access to a directory which does not contain an index file (ie. index.php, index.html, etc...)

This stops potential hackers from viewing directory contents and running exploits on the server.

If you receive this error when linking to a folder, please create an index file or link to a specific file instead.


Instead of http://domainname.com.au/folder

Use http://domainname.com.au/folder/file.php

Possible Cause

» The URL may have been typed into the browser address bar or linked from another website incorrectly.

» Access to the requested page or URL has been blocked or forbidden by the website owner or server admin.

» File or folder permissions are incorrect. Folder may also be missing an index file, so try accessing via full path.

Possible Solutions

» Check the URL in the browser address bar for any spelling mistakes or errors.

» If you believe you should have access to the requested URL, contact the website owner or support department.

» If you are the website owner, check file and folder permissions for the URL you are trying to access.
