403 error hide admin controls
« on: March 08, 2022, 09:24:17 pm »

I have a brand new installation and am intermittently getting a 403 error when using the "hide admin controls" button under "my gallery".  The message says "403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!"  The web address in the address bar when I get this message is

I looked up the permissions page in the documentation online and made sure that all of the folders & files that needed 777 permissions were set correctly.  I did have to change some of those but it hasn't affected the 403 issue.  I'm able to create categories & albums and upload pics without any error messages. I'm not sure where else to look for help with this and haven't found any posts at all in the forum or by googling that deal with this... I'm afraid that I might be missing something obvious but I sure don't know where to look next..

Thank you for all help!

The error is not from Coppermine, but from your hosting. You may need to approach them for assistance on this one.
It is a mistake to think you can solve any major problems just with potatoes.
