FCKeditor: 403 error - can't load fckstyles.xml [solved]

Postby herbtea » 1:40am, Fri 22 Oct, 2010

I tried using FCKeditor and here is the error message that pops up;

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<TITLE>403 Forbidden</TITLE>
</HEAD><BODY>
<H1>Forbidden</H1>
You don't have permission to access /lists/admin/FCKeditor/fckstyles.xml
on this server.<P>
<HR>
<ADDRESS>Apache/1.3.41 Server at http://www.xxxxxxxxx.com Port 80</ADDRESS>
</BODY></HTML>

I saw this posted in the forum but there wasn't any solution offered.

When googling this error message you should find a number of possible explanations, for instance one that refers to a server configuration issue, where .xml files are parsed like .php files:

Additionally, you would need to fix a bug: http://mantis.phplist.com/view.php?id=15297

I think I found the issue with the FCKeditor. I remembered that Joomla has a security vulnerability that I have a directive in the .htaccess to prevent access to *.xml files. I have an exception for sitemap.xml and I've entered another for fcksytles.xml and that seems to have solved the problem. I'll post this on the FCK thread you started for me.
I'll check out the links you posted and see what else I may need to do.
Thanks again for the assistance :)

All right. Thanks for detailing this.
