I am trying to run a test website with just one index.html and one css document, but every time I try to load it, it gives me error 403 Forbidden. I have no idea what could cause this, as I did nothing in the file manager except upload the files and delete the original index2 file, which also could not be accessed. I did not tamper with .htaccess either, it is the htaccess that came with the server. Could anyone help me figure out what’s wrong?
I did upload the files to htdocs, no subfolders or anything.
I’m also wondering if it could be an issue from cloudflare, as that’s where I got the SSL certificate, but I’m not sure about that. I used an SSL checker and my SSL seems to be working correctly, and I don’t get the error for that anymore. Now I only get the 403 error.
Your domain is not showing the default 403 Forbidden page which InfinityFree has, so it’s not pointing to our servers. Please make sure that your domain is pointing to our servers by pointing all A records for @ and www to the IP address of your hosting account, which can be found on the Account Details section of the Client Area on the hosting account’s page, through Cloudflare’s dashboard.
Do you mean creating a new directory in the root folder named “daveyloper.com” and creating an htdocs folder inside that? I do not see a directory named “daveyloper.com” anywhere. If I sound like an idiot, I am, cause this is the first time I’ve worked with hosting a website, so I apologise.
