You don't have permission to access /catalog/ on this server.

All my permission seems ok !

Your help would be appreciate

Usually happens because default.php is not set up as an index page in your apache config file.


You can confirm this by using




if this works then that's almost certainly your problem.

Ask your host to make default.php an index page. If they can't do this ask if you can use an htaccess file to change the index files.


If none of the above, rename default.php to index.php then in configure.php change


DEFINE('FILENAME_DEFAULT', 'default.php');

I used Ian's solution.


But for my snapshot of 2002-12-19 I need to change that define line in application_top.php instead of configure.php. Also you need to change the name of the default.php in the languages' section too. Don't forget to change all languages if you use several.
