    Check the error log, it will help you 100%. In most of the cases the problems comes from wrong permissions or owner/group rights.
    To change any permission, use:
    *For folders: chmod 755 /direcotry/file.php
    For example - chmod 755 /home/user/public_html/wrong_permission_folder
    *For files, use 644: chmod 644 /home/user/public_html/wrong_permission_file.php

    you can use these commands if you are not in the problematic file/folder location. If you are under the problematic file/folder location, just use: chmod 755 folder ; chmod 644 file.php

    403 forbidden error shows to you on the web browser when you are denied access to that page. The most common reason of showing a 403 error when accessing a website is that we are trying to open the folder of a website instead of a page. Most websites are configured to disallow directory browsing so a 403 Forbidden message when trying to display a folder instead of a specific page is normal and expected. To get rid of this, make sure you're specifying an actual web page file name and extension, not just a directory.

    Clear your browser's cache. Issues with a cached version of the page you're viewing could be causing 403 Forbidden issues.
