    My client is having 403 forbidden errors for all of his sites on his server, 100+ domains.

    I've checked .htaccess in some domains, even for the ones without .htaccess it appears to have the forbidden error also.

    Any ideas?

    The 403 error can be caused due to many reasons . Check the Apache error logs to find the exact error .

    what is the permission of public_html directory ?

    Make sure that the public_html is set to at least 750 permissions. All other folders to 755 and files to 644. If all looks good and you cannot access the logs then the better idea would be to contact your host.

    If it's all sites, make sure /home/user directories are all 755 perms, public_html dirs are 750, and /home itself is also 755. You should be able to identify the problem quickly by looking at /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log though.

    Had you added any global rule inside the httpd.conf file lately?
