Folder inaccessible





rajupp
Hi,
I have my blog hosted on frih.org. The blog folder is inaccessible for me. It says Access denied whenever I try to open the folder.
Quote:
Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /WordPress/wp-admin/plugins.php on this server.


What I fear now is, if i have changed the access permissions (chmod) to the folder Sad
Can someone help me in knowing what exactly the issue is and how to fix it?

Thanks
rvec
chmod the dir you can't access to 766 and it'll be normal again.
rajupp
Thanks a lot rvec. Yeah, you were right. I changed the chmod to 766 as you told, now I am able to access my WordPress folder Very Happy
But my blog is still down. I get the error given below when I try accessing my URL

I wonder what's wrong Rolling Eyes Embarassed

After lots of trial and error, I managed to bring up the blog back. I had to chmod everything to 777 for it to start working again. But isn't it a serious security issue? Even with 766 its saying Permission denied Rolling Eyes
rvec
oh my mistake, should've been 755 instead of 766.
apache needs execute permissions, and better not write permissions where not needed (777 gives both).
rajupp
tried with 766 as well. but no use Sad
it works only with 777. strange Neutral
rvec
I meant 755, not766 Razz
766 can't work cause apache doesn't have execute permissions that way.
