403 error

Hello, dears!

I´d appreciate if you could help me to find a solution to a 403 error message. This story began when I installed a new plugin. In theory, it was 100% compatible but once I activated it, I couldn´t access my dashboard anymore: 403 error. Access denied. I contacted my hosting company and as I expected, it was a total waste of time. I solved this problem deleting the plugin (and some other inactive ones) via FTP. Ok, cool.

I contacted my hosting company and as I expected, it was a total waste of time. So, I asked Saint Google and I found some related articles. I solved this problem deleting the plugin (and some other inactive ones) via FTP. Ok, cool.

Now, I realize that no one can add products to the shopping cart. And not only that, I can´t install new plugins.

I´ve already tried all the options explained on wpbeginners.com, and Bobcares,  How to Fix the 403 Forbidden error in WordPress.

Htaccess file, checked.

Permissions 755 (directories) 644 (archives), checked.

Deactivate plugins, checked.

None of these worked. Any ideas?

Thank you 🙂

        Morning @maryjob
        Can you try replacing your wordpress files?

        Just download a new wordpress installation and replace everything except wp-config
        If you can also send the url of the site, if it’s not on your localhost.

        Where can I find you online that’s convenient to share screen and screenshots. No option for that on Evernote. I have send you a message there.

      4. Thanks a lot Mary!!!
        I´ve answered on Evernote, my bad!
