403 Forbidden when accessing folder with index.html


Hello, I built a website and had to move the hosting here because hostinger’s free servers had ran out of Hard drive space (Probably intentional)

Anyway, the new website I wrote has an issue on this host.

Normally when you point to a folder with an index.html the host displays the index.html - This is not the case here.
Instead a 403 is given.
If I access the index.html file directly it functions as intended.

https://djrapitops.000webhostapp.com/music/ - 403
Same address with index.html in the end works fine (“New users can only post one link”)

I want to use the folder/index.html system to remove the .html requirement and to have a cleaner folder structure.
How can I fix the 403?


Hi @Rapitops!

All problems have been fixed.

Please clear your browser cache and try again.


Thank you very much :slight_smile:
Nice to wake up to all problems being fixed.


I managed to break it again by changing the .htaccess without downloading the one on the server first.
What changes did you add to it to make it work?


This line was causing the error
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)$ $1.html [NC,L]
I have fixed the error :slight_smile:


Now it is giving me 500 on all pages :frowning:

Fixed by removing .htaccess file
