    Have you configured the site default page using default.aspx?

    Hello,

    I suggest that you look at the Tutorials http://www.asp.net/webmatrix/content-guide and Guides for Web Matrix.

    If you look at the Content Map  Videos and Step-by-Step instructions cover start to finish with working code.

    Hi topspy,

     Thanks for your reply.

    No I did not.

    But now I added a default.aspx and still 403 error.

    Hi there HCamper,

    Thanks for your help much appreciated.

    Looked at all the vidoes and nothing. Went through the tutorials and still getting 403 error. It's not the first set of tutrials I have gone through.

    And this does not tell me how and why the error is appearing.

    Hello,

    Ok. I find in most cases the Tutorials cover the pitfalls. 

    This is a guide http://support.microsoft.com/kb/943891 for IIS Status codes with Descriptions.

    Can you use WebDeploy as your protocol (assuming your hosting account supports it)? It will perform many of the configuration tasks for you automatically. Yishai

    Hello,

    If you do not have a hosting provider that supports Web Deploy, you might be able to find one on our Hosting Gallery here:

    http://www.microsoft.com/web/Hosting/Home?spotlight=true

    I would also recommend asking over on the ASP.NET forums - they may be able to help out as well:

    Hi there Martin,

     You know you have no clue about the error message and you wasted a lot of my time sending me here and there and everywhere,

    If you do not have a conclusive answer to a question or problem show some restraint. Geezer!
