    This is kicking my butt. I've got Apache running on my Mac OSX 10.5.2 w. Dreamweaver CS3. I can no longer preview in Dreamweaver via any browser. I get this:

    FORBIDDEN
    You don't have permission to access /~Biks/anypage.html on this server.

    This worked for the longest time. It works with Dreamweaver on my laptop, but not on my desktop. Yup, I've check the permissions with Command i, etc. I've only got one account on my computer.

    Have you made sure "Web Sharing" is still checked in Sharing in System Preferences? It may have gotten unchecked.

    Not the sharing control panel

    Yup, got WEB SHARING activated in the SHARING control panel. What's weird is when I click the link: Your personal website - I get the same message

    Forbidden

    I AM Biks. It's the only account on this computer. I can't access myself. Jeez.. I was messing with root user a while ago...

    Check this page out for a possible solution. Seem it my be due to permissions on your user folder.

    To change the permissions, open Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal) and type in,

    cd .. ; chmod a+rw user_directory

    and change user_directory to your own user directory name.
