To set permission kindly follow the below steps:

cPanel > file manager >public_html> Permission tab > File – 640 or 644, Directory – 750 or 755

Plugin disables: To improve the appearance and performance of a website, plugins play a big role over here. So, keep on updating the plugins without fail.

cPanel > file manager >public_html>wp-contents > plugins >plugins_disable

Later you can activate the plugin after checking the 403 forbidden error.

2. Use FTP for 403 forbidden errors:

Coming straight to the point:

Start troubleshooting 403 forbidden!

.htaccess file: public_html> server tab > force showing hidden files >download .htacces file (keep the download copy with you) > .htaccess file delete (right click).

Create new .htacces file from the settings.

File permission check: As said previously, the files are set up with permission. There are three types of permission such as read, write and execute.

Public_html folder > have an idea about file and directory permission > permission tab > enter the value of file or directory.

Plugin disables: Disable the plugin to check whether the problem is got over with the plugin or not.
