What does 'Error 403: Forbidden' mean?

  1. Hi:

    I am currently serializing a story on my blob, and today I hit a reoccurring error. Every time I post a section of text I get this error:

    Error 403: Forbidden

    Your PHP settings have been disabled by an H-Sphere administrator.

    * Your current PHP configuration:
    * --> This configuration was changed:

    Please bring your PHP configuration in compliance with admin settings or request your administrator to re-enable support of your settings.

    You don't have permissions to access this page. This usually means one of the following:

    * this file and directory permissions make them unavailable from the Internet.
    * .htaccess contains instructions that prevent public access to this file or directory.

    Please check file and directory permissions and .htaccess configuration if you are able to do this. Otherwise, request your webmaster to grant you access.

    Since the WordPress blog is hosted on my own domain, I am technically the administrator and the webmaster, yet I can't figure out what the issue is. Can someone explain what's going on above? Many thanks!!!

  3. Since the WordPress blog is hosted on my own domain

    That means you are in the wrong forum and we will not have the answer. You need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support which is where self-hosted blogs are supported.
