Help please!! I was trying to set up a WordPress site today & got this error:
You don’t have permission to access /wp-login.php on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
So I was then unable to login to my wordpress dashboard.
I did a couple of things before this happened & wondered which of these could have caused the issue:
- Parked my website on DreamHost (but I later changed it back & it didn’t fix it)
- In ‘Manage Domains’/‘PHP Mode’, I selected PHP 5.6 (default) - it had been “Fully Hosted with PHP 5.5” previously
- In ‘Manage Domains’ I selected ‘Automatically upgrade PHP’
- In WordPress, I started adding a Gallery page in my theme & when I went to update, I got the first error message.
When I went back into DreamHost to check, I discovered the web hosting had completely dropped off my domain (DNS only). My other domains weren’t effected.
Also, now I get a message ‘Site not found’ when I return to my site (after taking off parking).
Why has this happened? Is it an issue with my theme or with DreamHost? Why did my Dreamhost web hosting get wiped for this domain?
Please let me know.
