I get "Forbidden" when installling mods.

Wondering why that MOD you have won't install correctly? Let's take a look

I get "Forbidden" when installling mods.

I have pictures showing what happens, everything that has a red square around is what I clicked. Also the first image is tagged so just click on the mod to go to where I got it from.

check your chmod/permissions on that file. it should be set to 644 that is read/write...read...read

No, same error even with it chmod 644 :(

Do you have any suggestions?

check permissions on all the files/folders.

all folders should be set to 755 and all files should be 644

some servers are really picky about all this.

well damn, I have all directories chmod 755 and all files 644, Is there any other possible way this is happening?

Like it thinks I'm not admin/owner or whatever?

in your image above, you show that file to be set to 777 not 755

be sure it is 755. in this case , more is not better.

although, if that was the problem, you would normally get a 500 error.

Well in my above post I said I had the changed it.

I'm still getting the error! I have a Linux based server, does this have anything to do with it?

no, if it was not a linux based server, then that might cause problems.

this, like most everything else on the net is designed to work on *nix servers.

see if there is a htaccess file in your admin folder.

if so, rename it and test.

No, no htaccess file. Any other ideas? I could create a account so you could look at the files I'm having issues with.
