Hello , i just installed mybb on host gator , i did everything correctly but when I try to import theme or customize my forum through admin panel i am getting this Error:


You don't have permission to access /forum/admin/index.php on this server.

Can i anyone tell me what is the problem , according to me there is some problem with chmod of admin directory but i never changed it once..

Are you by any chance hosted by hostsavers? I have the same problem.

Anyway, this problem is caused by mod_security. You could try making a .htaccess file in your MyBB root with these contents:

Code:
#
# If mod_security is enabled, attempt to disable it.
# - Note, this will work on the majority of hosts but on
#   MediaTemple, it is known to cause random Internal Server
#   errors. For MediaTemple, please remove the block below
#
<IfModule mod_security.c>
    # Turn off mod_security filtering.
    SecFilterEngine Off

    # The below probably isn't needed, but better safe than sorry.
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
</IfModule>

If that doesn't work (as it doesn't for me), you'll have to get your host to sort it server-side (as I'm trying to get hostsavers to do)
Also, you could try to give to "/forum/admin/index.php" CHMOD 777. (Though I dont think this gonna work)
No point in CHMODing, won't fix it, it's mod_security as detailed above.
