Sometimes it may happen that you do not have the required permission over certain file/folder of your web directory. Due to this, you may receive a forbidden error. To fix the issue, you will need to assign permission to the concerned file/folder. You can do this from Windows File Explorer via Remote Desktop. If you are not comfortable with it, you can always use SolidCP file manager. Read this tutorial further to assign permissions via SolidCP.
