403 forbidden error with magento ce 1.9.1.1

It seems there is a permission error with magento 1.19.1.1 zip file. My site issued 403 forbidden error when I ran it at my site.... Files with permission 640 but not 644...

Try to apply 644 permission to your zip file.

I had the same issue, but I was able to resolve it by updating system-wide file permissions after unzipping/extracting the .zip or .tar.gz file. Log in via SSH, and make sure you're in the root directory of your Magento instance. Then run these commands:

 

find ./ -type f | xargs chmod 644
find ./ -type d | xargs chmod 755
chmod -Rf 777 var
chmod -Rf 777 media

Clear your browser cache, reload the URL of your Magento instance, and you should be able to complete the browser-based installation.

wrong user, you have to login as the user who owns the files.

+------------+------+-------+
| Permission | Octal| Field |
+------------+------+-------+
| rwx------  | 700  | User  |
| ---rwx---  | 070  | Group |
| ------rwx  | 007  | Other |
+------------+------+-------+  

 or add this user to web group, and set permissions:

usermod -g webgroup username
find . -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;
find . -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
chmod -R 777 var media

 

or probably update your FTP users "umask" - 002

Hi.

 

Well, i've got stuck at the same issue, of the crazy error 403, but i don't know how to acess via SSH to correct the file permissions.

 

There is any other way around the anoying issue?

 

Thank you

Re: 403 forbidden error with magento ce 1.9.1.1

I am not a developer, but am having this issue on Magento 1.9 You don't have permission to access /cron.php on this server.

 

Please can someone tell me as basic as possible how to correct this.  I understand I need to add some commands, but where do I add the?  Do I add them as a seperate file? I am working on a 123-reg cpanel.

Re: 403 forbidden error with magento ce 1.9.1.1

where do you put this command I have filezilla, and am trying to sort this issue out.

Re: 403 forbidden error with magento ce 1.9.1.1

I have worked out ssh put the command in under my public_html files and still has not solved the problem

 

Any advise please

Re: 403 forbidden error with magento ce 1.9.1.1

chmod 777 ??? Are you sure? Isn't this a security risk?

Also I get `chmod: access to 'fileXY.html' no possible: File or directory not found` on all files if I execute:

find ./ -type f | xargs chmod 644

 Edit: I found the solution here.
