403 Forbidden error

Hello,

I know this is a frequent question, but I followed a lot of the answers online and still get this error. I installed the latest version of WampServer (3.1.3 64-bit), put my test site and it worked on localhost, but when I put it online I get a 403 Forbidden. In the other answers it says to make a new Virtual Host, so I did.

# Virtual Hosts
#
<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName localhost
  ServerAlias localhost
  DocumentRoot "${INSTALL_DIR}/www"
  <Directory "${INSTALL_DIR}/www/">
    Options +Indexes +Includes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
    AllowOverride All
    Require local
  </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

#
<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerName example.com
    DocumentRoot "c:/wamp64/www/example_com"
    <Directory  "c:/wamp64/www/example_com/">
        Options +Indexes +Includes +FollowSymLinks +MultiViews
        AllowOverride All
        Require all granted
    </Directory>
</VirtualHost>

Still, I get 403 Forbidden error.

Hi

Do you have an index.php file in the c:/wamp64/www/example_com folder?

Also I suggest you check your port forwarding and also your Firewall

Yes, I have an index.php.
The firewall initially didn't allow inbound traffic to pass, so I made rules for TCP and UDP.
Before that, when I typed the address, the browser just showed as if it started to load the page and just hung.
After that, it started displaying "403 Forbidden", which to me suggests that traffic is reaching the server and port forwarding works fine.

Also, if I do a "ping example.com" in cmd, it is successful.

Have you checked the Apache Error log for any more clues?

I checked it now, when I try to load the main page, two errors appear in the log (I've edited the domain name and IPs):

[Tue Jul 10 16:39:54.823519 2018] [authz_core:error] [pid 2088:tid 1016] [client <IP and port removed>] AH01630: client denied by server configuration: C:/wamp64/www/

Did you activate and use the "Put Online" manu in wampmanager?

Yes, in the beginning, before I learned about creating a new Virtual Host, I searched for the "Put Online/Offline" option, activated it and used it. It didn't do what I expected though, so I reverted it back (I think) by going to httpd.conf and editing it like this:

# onlineoffline tag - don't remove
Require local
</Directory>

Then I made the new Virtual Host in httpd-vhosts.conf, as suggested (by you, I think) in several answers around the Internet.

smiling smiley Didn't mean that at all, just remembered your name from there.
You did help a lot of people, but in my case it doesn't solve the problem.

One more check!

Check that this line is uncommented in your httpd.conf file

# Virtual hosts
Include conf/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf

the `Include` shoudl not have a `#` in front of it

Thanks, I'll look over the .conf files again very carefully and if I don't find anything, then we may try a TV session.
