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.
