index.html ... You don't have permission to access (5 posts)

    "Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /gen~/ on this server."

    This only recently started being a problem, been actually building the page on-line. If I place the index file anywhere else it works fine (obviously relative links don't)

    I need this to be in:http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen%7E/01_task_one/index.html

    This works fine with an older back up:http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen%7E/01_task_one/index20150416754pm.html

    Strangely if I "COPY WEB ADDRESS" from the index/html file when it is in the /01_task_one folder fetch's "COPY WEB ADDRESS" says "http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen%7E/" THE PARENT FOLDER!

    If I enter "http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen~/01_task_one/index.html" directly into a browser it works fine. Fetch has just given it the wrong address.

    It is just tedious to have to work around this. Anyway anyone know

    1) Why?
    2) Or how to resolve?

    Thanks for any interest and help.

    Hi,

    Fetch gives you the parent folder because the "index.html" is implicit. In general, when you go to a folder URL you see the index.html (or index.php, etc.) page.

    I see the same thing at http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen%7E/01_task_one/index.html and http://www.darkandspiky.co.uk/gen%7E/01_task_one/ . Is the problem resolved for you?

    Hi Jim,

    No the problem remains. If I rename the index.html file say index1.html hitting the webview button show it fine, whereas renaming it back to index.html view and hitting the webview button shows the error screen.

    However I can open the files without explicitly typing >index.html and just leaving the parent folder name in a browser... just the webview button in Fetch doesn't like it.

    The site will / should function correctly so I'll just plod along keeping the browser open and refreshing.

    Thanks,

    Miles

    Thanks for that additional information. What URL is in the browser address bar when you get the error?

    Thanks,
