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 "", 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.

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