IIS 4 and Read Access for pl files
I'm finally trying to move my Links 2.0 setup from my prototyper to my public site.

Everything is nice and stable on the prototype site, but when I try to open admin.pl on the public site, I get an error that reads:

"403.2 Forbidden: Read Access Forbidden

This error can be caused if there is no default page available and directory browsing has not been enabled for the directory, or if you are trying to display an HTML page that resides in a directory marked for Execute or Script permissions only."

In IIS 4 I've tried adding browse permission to the Links admin dir. I've told it to accept admin.pl as a form of default file.

Still doesn't work. Any suggestions?

Hi Bobb,
Looks like you need to contact your ISP because the problem appears to be that your server is not setup correctly.

Good Luck Smile
