Just tried to access this link;

http://blog.seorevolution.com/2012/09/28/things-you-should-know-right-now/

And got:
“Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /2012/09/28/things-you-should-know-right-now/ on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I also tried http://blog.seorevolution.com with the same result.

Help please.

Hi -
There are no problems for me to access both links at this time -
You may have a security setting too high somewhere - This may be in your A/virus or other program settings (Hosts file etc).
Are there any other sites that you cannot access, private or commercial sites ?? If so, please list them -

Thank You -

Please try this first -
http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9668866 << Run this M/soft Fixit Program
Click Run and follow any on-screen directions -
This will also reset your Hosts File for you -

Thanks -

Finally -
HTTP Error 403 Forbidden < More for general information on the error -

A quote from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the HTTP used on the World Wide Web, 403 Forbidden is an HTTP status code returned by a web server when a user requests a web page or media that the server does not allow them to access. In other words, the server can be reached, but the server declined to allow access to the page. This response is returned by the Apache web server when directory listings have been disabled or mod_proxy was configured to block such requests. Microsoft IIS responds in the same way when directory listings are denied.

Is this your website or are you just visiting it?

If it's your website, check your .htaccess file for any denied IP addresses. The .htaccess should be located in /home/YourUsername/public_html/.htaccess on Linux hosts.

If this isn't your website and you're getting a 403 and others aren't, then your IP address is most likely blocked on their server. Contact them and ask them if your IP address has been blocked.

403 is a server-side error for "access denied".

Try clearing your browser cache and check if your browser is configured to use a proxy server or not.

I've cleared my cache. No change.

My browser Firefox 14.0.1 is set at No Proxy. The other settings available are:

Auto detect proxy settings for this network
Use system proxy settings
Manual proxy configuration

I would be grateful if you could give me the reason for your answer as I have no experience of using proxy settings.

Reason : If you have set proxy, then 403 error might come from proxy server and not actual web server.

So you are not using any proxy.

Try resetting your HOSTS file http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034

Are you using a security software. if not then install MBAM and avast! and scan your system. If you find something, then BC Malware team might help you.

Even then, if you get this error then perhaps the site has blocked your IP address or IP address range

Try accessing it using proxy server like HideMyAss.

Used Microsoft FixIt at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/972034, Found and installed Tor Browser (Proxy). I'll run an antivirus scan tonight and if that's OK, I think I will just give this up.

Many thanks to everyone who have given their time in trying to solve my problem.
