    Hi, I am having issues with permissions - currently my server is rendering 403 pages on every page.

    I have contacted my host, in the mean time, here is my Apache error message:
    AH00529: /home/.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable and that '/home/' is executable,

    Can anyone offer assistance? =)

    Hello,

    Yes, surely we can. You should check if /home/ has 755, /home/user/ 711 and /home/user/public_html/ has 750 permissions. There might be a possibility of server being read-only. Try to touch a file in /home/ to make sure this is not the case. If it is, you should run fsck on the that partition.

    Hello :)

    Do you have root access to this system? If so, please check the permissions on the /home, /home/$username, and /home/$username/public_html directories using the "ls -al" or "stat" commands and let us know the output.

    Thank you.
