How to fix Gmail error code 403?

The 403 Forbidden errors is an HTTP status code that means that accessing the page or resource you were trying to reach is absolutely forbidden for some reason. Different web servers report 403 errors in different ways. Occasionally a website owner will customize the site’s HTTP 403 error, but that’s not too common.

In Internet Explorer, “The website declined to show this webpage” message indicates a 403 Forbidden error. The IE title bar should say 403 Forbidden or something

Various Forms:

  1. “403 FORBIDDEN”
  2. “ HTTP 403”
  3. “ERROR 403”
  4. “FORBIDDEN”
  5. “HTTP ERROR 403- FORBIDDEN”
  6. “HTTP ERROR 403.14 – FORBIDDEN”
  7. “Forbidden: You don’t have permission to access [directory] on this server”

Causes:

  • 403 errors are almost always caused by issues where the user is trying to access something that doesn’t have access to.
  • The 403 error is essentially saying “Go away and don’t come back here.”

Solutions:

  1. Check for URL errorsand make sure the user is specifying an actual web page file name and extension, not just a directory.
  2. Most websites are configured to disallow directory browsing so: 403 forbidden message when trying to display a folder instead of a specific page is normal and expected.
  3. If the user operate the website in question, & want to prevent 403 errors in these cases, enable directory browsing in your web server software.
  4. Clear your browser’s cache. Issues with a cached version of the page the user viewing could be causing 403 Forbidden issues.
  5. Log in to the website a 403 Forbidden message could mean that you need additional access before you can view the page.
  6. Typically, a website produces a 401 unauthorizederror when special permission is required but sometimes a 403 Forbidden is used instead.
  7. Clear your browser’s cookies, especially if you typically log in to this website and logging in again didn’t work.

While we’re talking about cookies, be sure you have them enabled in your browser, or at least for this website, if you do actually log in to access this page. The 403 Forbidden errors, in particular, indicate that cookies might be involved in obtaining proper access.

  1. Contact the website directly.
  2. It’s possible that the 403 Forbidden errors is a mistake, everyone else is seeing it too, and the website isn’t yet aware of the problem.
  3. See my Website Contact Informationlist for contact information for lots of popular websites. Most sites have support-based accounts on social networking sites, making it really easy to get a hold of them. Some even have support email addresses and telephone numbers.
