When I'm trying to update extensions from to, it gives me 403 permission forbidden error. What should I do?


Check permission of /downloader/ folder if permission is not 755 then set it to 755 and check permission of /downloader/index.php file and set to 644.

If this not work then backup your downloader folder and download fresh magento setup and upload only downloader folder into your root directory.

Hope that will work for you, it's work for me.

  • Thank you. I was able to get into the downloader but the website URL and the admin still give me a 403 perfmission forbidden error. – Lulu Davis Sep 19 '17 at 22:57
