So, I am working with Magento 1.9 and I want to create a new subfolder in the Magento root in order to put my scripts.
The matter is, in localhost everything is working fine. I can browse /scripts without any problem. However, when I try to access /scripts from the website Magento root I get 403 error forbidden.
Why is that? How can I fix it?
I tried to copy the live website .htaccess in the localhost but doing so I still manage to browse /scripts without any error.
So it seems it isn't an .htaccess problem, maybe has something to do with permission? The Magento root and all its subfolders are of course not readable, but then how can I create a browsable subdirectory?
Is there maybe a folder inside Magento where I can run my custom scripts or how can I create a readable subfolder in Magento root?
