    troubleshooting 403 error


    Hello,

    I just setup a website in IIS 10.0, Windows Server 2016, and I am getting a 403 error when I try to browse to the site on the server:



    I've tried everything I could from setting authentication and authorization in IIS to setting the permissions on the website folder.

    One thing I noticed is that if I put an index.html file in the root folder of the website, and add "hello world" to the file, it displays "hello world" when I browse to the site (again on the server). So it seems like it's not an issue with getting to the site but being able to navigate to the right file/folder within the site.

    Can anyone suggest what might be going on? Thanks.

    I'm guessing you turned on directory browsing, or changed the default index page, or decided you did want that index.html after all?
