After Joomla installation via Fantastico, 403 Forbidden error
Posted by Andy Williams, Last modified by Andy Williams on 26 November 2006 09:33 PM
After I used Fantastico to install Joomla 1.0.8 in my website, at this location "www.mywebsite.com/info", there was an error. I was not able to visit the new Joomla installation. Instead all I got was a blank page with this on it:

403 Forbidden.
You don't have permission to access joomla/index.php on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


Answer:
----------------------
Please replace the line "Options FollowSymLinks" with "Options FollowSymLinks ExecCGI" in your .htaccess inside the Joomla folder.
