You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Q: You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Agh!
I keep getting this error everytime I try to get onto a certain site:

Forbidden

You don't have permission to access / on this server.

And I am not sure why. I can access the site when I am on a different network or through a proxy, but not from my home network. Is is possible that I was blocked from this site or something? Is there a way to get around this (other than a proxy)?

Preferred Solution: You don't have permission to access / on this server.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Can you tell us the site or give us a link to it so we can see if others get the same error.

On Windows7 Pro,  trying to run IIS.  The way I am used to execute is  on the browser "localhost".  I used to have the code in the directory  C:\inetpub\wwwroot.   Even before I copy,  I am hoping to see
the image IIS welcome page.  Once it is successful, want to copy the code as that was the way I used to do in Window XP.    However I am getting the following message.  I have administrator access to the machine and gave full permissions
to the folder  'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.  Still the same message. 
Error message 401.3: You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied (access denied due to Access Control Lists). Ask the Web server's administrator to give you access to 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot'.

Can someone help me to address this issue.  Thanks a lot in advance.

Dear all:
This question is about giving right permission for users to access a folder, which contains a MS Access file database. In this case, without using MS Access to grant Read/Write rights, I can use Server OS to control user permissions of Read/Write.

However, it has happened a few times that suddenly some of us who have Administrator rights were only able to read the data but not able to alter; in other words, our permission rights have changed from Administrator to limited users. (Admin has both read and write, limited users only have read only).

I checked on the Server end, the permissions (for accessing that folder) are given correctly (assigned within Active Directory).

I was trying to figure out how it happened, and suddenly, I was able to view the database as Admin again.

There seems to be a glitch with my network across MS platform or something... sometimes either I cannot view the computers/shared folders on network, or sometimes I cannot access certain directories with right permissions.

Gladly this does not happen often (like once a month). But still, I would like to fix it. If anyone knows anything about it, please feel free to share your knowledge -)


Thank you~~

We recently removed 5 out of 6 total 2008R2 DCs from our environment and promoted 5 x 2016 servers as DCs.  We are still running the domain functional level @ 2008R2 however.

Shortly have recent changes (stated above) the issue started with 5 users in parent domain.  After existing user logs in applications like  windows explorer, internet explore, will error with  "windows cannot access the specified
device, path or file. you may not have the appropriate permission to access the item".  Also, other applications will not run as they are attempting to resister OCX file and DLLs.  cannot access computer management even after granting affected
user local admin rights.  This issue has now transcended to child domain and is affecting at the moment only 1 existing user.
Unaffected users are able to login to same test computer and run applications without issue.
Clearly a domain permission problem with the user account, but not sure how to proceed.
For testing I gave affected users domain admin rights and the issue goes away.  Remove domain admin rights and the issue returns for the user.
Any ideas?

Hey everyone,

Thanks for this great website. This will actually be my first post here. I am having issues with my DNS configurations, under the IPV4 properties. I originally had it set to receive the dns server automatically, and now it is constantly changing to receive dns server through a static IP. The static Ip address that keeps getting assigned is 216.146.36.240. I do have internet access, but I my outlook which is setup with a exchange email address is not connecting because of this issue. I noticed that my homepage did change once, but I dont know if it was because of a software that I downloaded or virus related. Honestly, I am not sure what is causing this.

Things that I have already tried:
Booted into safemode and ran rkill followed by malwarebytes and superantispyware.
I didnt know I wasn't supposed to run it on my own, but I ran Combofix (sorry)
I ran Microsoft Security Essentials
I ran from a command line ipconfig /flushdns, and rebooted.

Thanks guys

I now get this error message trying to access network resources from a laptop that used to work just fine. My wife's similarly configured laptop continues to work fine. I regularly share drives and printers across all machines and all appear to work except for this laptop. I have found that I can pring the other computers without issue if I use the ip address and can "net use" the drives directly by specifying the ip address rather than the computer name. However, any attempt to use the computer name fails (as above or as a "System error 53 has occurred" in a command prompt).

Hello,

I am attempting to access an application.exe file on my desktop. Each time that I click on it the Windows message, "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." pops up. I am the system administrator so this should NOT be a problem but apparently many out there are dealing with this as well. I can delete, move and even copy the file but I cannot run it. There is no option for override with password or grant permission. It just says that I cannot run it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also, the system I am running is Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

A:Windows can't access file. May not have permission to access.

Hello KyRy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might check to see if you can right click on the file, click on Properties, click on Security tab, and make sure that you have Read & execute permission allowed (checked) for your user account or the administrators group.Permissions - Allow or Deny Users and Groups
If not, then you might see if you may be able to install and use the free program Unlocker on the file to have access to it afterwards.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I have just set up a computer with Windows 7, and I'm apparently missing something simple, but I just can't find it.

I installed Windows 7 on the machine and everything works great. I then joined the computer to a 2003 Server domain. Everything still appeared to work fine. However, when I log into the domain on the Windows 7 computer, I don't have the correct permissions on the local machine.

I can access the domain. The login works fine. There are no errors. However, when I try and access anything on the local drive, like explorer.exe, it tells me that I don't have the permissions to access it. I can run some programs, in some directories (like Program Files), but if I try and run anything in the Windows directory, I don't have permission. I can access things on the domain, and I can even use Firefox to view the contents of domain machines, mapped network drives, and even the local C drive. I just cannot run anything that's in the local Windows directory.

I can access the local drive using either the domain administrator account, or the local machine administrator account. However, using either of those accounts, I'm not allowed to change permissions on that folder! I can see that the folder is set as read only, but when I attempt to remove the read-only flag (using either account), it tells me that I don't have permission to do that.

I've also tried to give the domain user administrator permission on the local machine, but that has no effect either. That part really con... Read more

Hello everyone, I'm new here and I signed up specifically because I was told this place was great for helping people with really intractable problems.

I have a user, Markus, he's an engineer, and he likes folder structures. He's got a nice one set up on my server with very well-defined permissions for several groups for his engineering projects.

His computer: Core 2 Duo machine running Windows Vista, non-SP1.
Server is a Dell PowerEdge running Server 2003 SP2 with all the latest updates.
We are in a Windows 2003 domain which is running pretty smoothly.

Starting a few weeks ago, he has been having problems very sporadically where a file that has has been working with and saving frequently, in a directory he has full permissions to access, refuses to save over its previous incarnation.

To break that down: he'll be in Word, say, and he saves his file every fifteen minutes, and at some point it will refuse to save over the existing copy and it will instead pop up the Save As box. Happens in Word, Illustrator, and Pro-E, so it's not program specific.

It ONLY happens for this user, none of the others. This means to me that it is either user-specific or OS-specific, as he's the only one running Vista, too.

Some of the programs will spit out an oddly-named file (like "a3bdfe8c") before giving the error. I assume that this is because the program is attempting to save the file and then write over the old one, in an attempt to make it an ato... Read more

Windows 8.1 running on C drive with all my back up/pervious folder/files on D drive from Windows 7. No issues initially.
Windows 8.1 developed operations issues and bugs a few months ago such as intermittently not allowing access to folders so I wiped C drive and reloaded again.
Currently I have tried to access some picture files, being the ones that were most likely modified /saved to D drive by the original Windows 8.1 and I cannot. Oddly enough it seems I have full access to documents and music folders/files on same D drive and the earliest picture pre first Windows 8.1 and latest pictures save buy current Windows 8.1.
When I click on the files in question, a window opens:
You don’t currently have permission to access this folder

I then click on “Continue”. The next window opens:
You have been denied permission to access this folder

I then click on “security tab” The next window opens: with tabs for General, Sharing, Security, Customise. I have clicked:

“General” to see; size: 0 bytes, Attributes: Read-only (selected), clicked Advanced… to see allow files in the folder to have contents indexed in addition to file properties (selected). No encrypt or other attributes has been selected.
“Security” to see “You must have Read permissions to view the properties of this object.”, clicked Advance to see Owner: Unable to display current owner. I click on the corresponding Change prompt and go through procedure to take owner ship of file. When I attempt to... Read more

I have tried to follow the steps to take ownership of the printer but when I right click on properties the only tabs are 'General' and 'Hardware'-- no 'Security' tab. So, I can't follow the rest of the steps. How do I find the printer through Windows Explorer?

I am the only user on my computer and I am the admin, but when I transferred my files from the old computer to the new, I was added as a User due to the old settings.
Now, when I want to access anything, I have to go through the permissions spiel.
Is there a way to change this so I have access to everything?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Hmmm.... Interesting-- I just started a new document and was able to print that out but not older documents that I transferred from old computer--??????

A:Can't access printer/ no permission

I was able to find my way to the proper folder and access the Security tab but everything is grayed out so I can't make any changes. Help!

Try Take Ownership Shortcut on the folders or drive.

Can you plug in the drive internally?

You can always Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or use Paragon Rescue Kit Free Edition 11.0 Free CD to another HD which require no permissions.

Hi! I have a strange problem accessing one partcular website and no other. Whenever I try to access reflexive.net from my home computer I get the following: Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server. I have no problem accessing this site from work or at my friends house. This problem has been going on for at least 2 months and it appears that this is the ONLY website affected. I tried doing a tracert on reflexive.net and got the following:

I'm hoping someone can help me. Recently my laptop has started denying me access to most of my programs. I cannot access any program that does not have the Run as Administrator option. I have Windows Vista and as far as I know I haven't changed any of the settings or security so I'm not sure why it is doing this all of a sudden. The code that I get reads as follows:

"Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file.You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."
Can anybody tell me how to fix this?

Hi, i have this problem that i cannot solve. i know why it happened but i was kinda trying stuff without really knowing what i was doing, so now i turn to this forum cause i tried all i could think/find and i still cant solve my mistake.

I had two HD,
C: with XP pro sp3 and linux (dual boot)
D: formated in ntfs with all extra data (songs, video, reports, receipt etc..)

When i had these two working normally, i needed to restrict the access of the second HD (the D to only one computer on the network so i messed around with the permission. I ended up deleting the whole list;
it was looking like this (under the security tab of the HD properties)
"Administrator"
"SYSTEM"
"User" X\username"

So i deleted these, it gave me problems , then i found how to re-take owner ship. but i only re-added

"User" X\username

i could then again access my files on the D: . but i still couldnt share my files as i wanted for some reason. so i decided to re-install windows...big mistake!!

I formated the C:, re-installed windows on it, no problem with that. But now i see the second HD in windows explorer as RAW and access is denied. Meaning the HD is detected and listed there, but the used space and total space amount is not showing, if i click properties, instead of NTFS its says RAW. If i try to open it to explore the content, i get an access denied message.

I tryied chkdsk it did some things (looked like it was changing stuff, but i cant see a... Read more

This recently started and I now have seen this on 5 different computers. All computers have current Trend AV. The box pops up on just about everything, IE - some shortcuts to some site work fine, others hive the message.
My Computer properties, word, excel just about every program.
All of these computers were fine until 8/15 or so and I think it may be a Windows update that corrupted the permissions, but now you cannot get into the permissions to change those either.
Any help would be great.
 

A:Do not have permission to access this application.

I have a folder on the D partition on a computer that originally had XP on it that I formatted both partitions during setup and installed the OS on C: and I use D: for frequently used images and my Windows 7 themes images. I have a folder that has about 300 screenshots from various animes of some of my favorite characters. it has been there since the install in 2014. But now every time I try to access the folder, I get an error message you don't currently have permission to access this folder. and I have to allow it via UAC. I did a web search of the message and only found results about working with files in the root of C drive or system files. I found nothing in regards to a folder I created myself that has only jpg and png images in it. What could be the problem?

A:"you don't currently have permission to access this folder"

Are you logged on as administrator?

I can see the drives from the other computers, but get an access denied when trying to access from them. I have check everywhere, and have permissions all set for everyone. The other computers are running XP, Vista, and Windows 7, all can see this one, but not access it.

Greetings all. I've a new from the box HP Pavillion with Win 7 6GB Ram, 640 GB HD, etc. I'm trying to get Thunderbird installed and transfer over my profile from my old laptop. The problem is that I need access to C:/Users/ME/ Application Data / ... etc so I can paste in my old email data also from Thunderbird. My access permission stops at "ME". I've looked at the permission properties via security settings and it shows that I have full control yet any effort to expand the data directory tree into Applications Data fails. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
 

A:Access Permission on Win7

Download MozBackup and backup Thunderbird on the old laptop. Now move MozBackup to your new system and restore to the newly install Thunderbird. And its just that easy...
