permission to access /main/wp-admin/media-upload.php on this serv

    The topic title above is my problem.

    After I upgraded WP version I could not manage to insert media to the posts or pages. I get a warning saying:

    You don’t have permission to access /main/wp-admin/media-upload.php on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

    Can anyone have an idea about the solution?

    I’m also having this problem when trying to setup a site using videopress. I keep getting the error: “You don’t have permission to access this.” when I try to add my blog.

    Has anybody come up with a solution to this yet?
