    http: Error 403

    neil451
      Hi Everyone
      This may have been posted in the past but I cannot find an answer so hopefully someone can help me.
      I have setup my computer for IIS using XP Service pack 3. I have copied my website folder on to my C: drive. I have created a folder in the InetPub, wwwroot folder for my site. I have been to the IIS services and created a virtual site. I have been through the site manager in Dreamweaver CS3 using the basic tab and set the site to ASP VBscript.
      My problem is when I get to the stage for testing my connection, http://localhost/ I keep getting a http error 403 message. No matter what I try and do it still will not let me connect successfuly.
      If someone can put it in plain english step by step I would really appreciate it.

      Heres hoping - Neil

          Sounds like a permissions problem to me, make sure iusr_computer name
          has read permissions for your new folder.
