Forbidden - You don't have permission to access /sphider/admin/admin.php

HI all,

Let me start by saying this engine is great. Simple installation and great open source configuration.
However, i am coming accross an error when using the admin console.


1. I login to the admin console and choose settings.
www.mysite.com/sphider/admin/admin.php?f=settings

2. I make a change to "Administrator e-mail address"

3. I click submit.

Error:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /sphider/admin/admin.php on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


I know it is a permissions issue, but where?

If you can help, that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Hades666

As well, the searchform works fine as well as the other tabs.

conf.php has to be writable by the script to change settings from admin section. If you cant/dont want to give these permissions, it's also very easy to modify the conf.php file manually.
