The e-commerce.

Catalog sub directorys access


Recommended Posts



I'm unable to view sub directories *.php files on local server with IE.

I'm trying to view the following file: column_left.php



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


The strange thing is that if I open main catalog site I get a msg at the top:


Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: C:/apachefriends/xampp/htdocs/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file.


So I know for a fact that "includes" directory has access!


Any suggestions?

Just because the configure.php file is writeable doesn't mean the folder is - because osCommerce specifically checks to see if the configure.php file is writeable - but that's not your problem anyway.


In fact there is no problem. No one should be able to bypass folders to look at the files inside them. If you want to look at what column left displays then you can see it on the web page - and if you want to edit the file then read the 'Parse Error?' link below my name for info on editing files.
