My magento2 back end URL is not working, I am not able to login into the back end. When I tried to open magento2 back end URL at that time it gives 403 error.This happened after I changed permission with

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \; 
find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \;
chmod -R 777 pub 
chmod -R 777 var 

How can I resolve this?

  • what permission you have given? – Murtuza Zabuawala Sep 20 '16 at 12:19
  • give following permission: find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \; find . -type d -exec chmod 777 {} \; chmod -R 777 pub chmod -R 777 var – Navin Bhudiya Sep 20 '16 at 12:28

Recommended is 644 for files and 755 for directories, or 664 for files and 775 for directories, if the cli user is not the same as the webserver user. If neither is enough, file ownership is not set up correctly. If the file system owner is not the same as the web server user, they should at least be in the same user group.

If you are on Magento 2.0.6 or higher, plase read the docs on file system ownership and permissions. There are complete instructions for both scenarios (two file system owners vs. one file system owner)
