xampplite and wordpress install, access forbidden 403

Postby senlin » 09. April 2009 11:49

For th past 24 hrs I have been trying to install xampplite (also tried xampp, wamp and others) via this tutorial http://www.tamba2.org.uk/wordpress/xampp/

Everything works until the very last step: go to http://localhost/wordpress/wp-admin/install.php

Then I get the following error:
"Access forbidden!
You don't have permission to access the requested object. It is either read-protected or not readable by the server.
If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
Error 403
localhost
04/09/09 12:20:41
Apache/2.2.11 (Win32) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.11 OpenSSL/0.9.8i mod_autoindex_color PHP/5.2.8"

I have searched a plethora of forums and articles, but I cannot get it to work :(

Does anybody have a working solution?

I'm on Windows XP Pro SP 3
Installed latest version of xampplite
trying to install WordPress 2.7.1

Check out the error log at the date and time you attempt to access your URI to see if there is more of a clue:
\apache\logs\error.log

BTW a full installation of XAMPP is preferred as some are having issues with the last 1.7.0 lite release.

Paste back the [error] messages if you can't work them out.

Often a 403 error is caused by a .htaccess file but may not be the case this time but the log file may help to fathom this out.
