Received 403 Forbidden Error after changing the Permalinks on WordPress
Yesterday, while I was editing my other page http://www.saikit.ca, I decided to change the perma link settings from the default option to something else. After making this change, all my pages received the “403 Forbidden Error”.
I contacted my website’s tech support team and they said that it has to do with permissions.
Permission is Key
I proceed to modify my whole website’s permission structure using Filezilla. I changed the permissions for all my directories to 755 and changed the permissions for all my files to 644.
The issue is now resolved.
According to ivalladt from WordPress, you can also fix this issue by doing this:
Checking logs my server was complaining that the RewriteRule could not be enabled, so I asked my provider to check AllowOverride was All for my virtual server. It’s fixed now!
