I am on a MediaTemple DV3 server, I followed the MT knowledge base instructions to install php5.  Then the first time I unzipped the files on my hard drive then moved then uploaded them onto the server and I got a 403 forbidden page.  Actually any file contained within the magento directory was forbidden, even just a info.php file I made.

The second time I uploaded the tar.gz file and extracted it on the server etc.  Still the same thing.

MY best guess is it has something to do with the .htaccess file, but I don’t know what if anything.  Please help.

Chris

This looks like something specific to your setup.. please check the file and folders permissions

This has something to do with the mod-rewrite. When i turn it off, i can access the page just fine.

Also, the DV3 doesnt have the correct version of php5. You’ll have to download the compiled version from the magento kb and follow the instructions.
