    403 at step 2 of setup-config, by ChampionMedia

    Hi all,

    I admit I’m no expert. But from everything I’ve read, 403 is caused by either a plugin, a bad .htaccess or incorrect permissions. This is a brand new install that is falling over at step 2 of setup-config. So options 1 and 2 shouldn’t be applicable. Thus, leaving incorrect permissions as the only possible option. But upon inspection, they seem to be fine.

    Anyone got any ideas? install.php works fine, and step 1 goes fine, but as soon as I enter DB info – I get the 403 at step 2.

    Note: it’s a subdomain installation. Not sure if that affects anything? I’ve done tonnes before with no issues so I can’t see why it would now.
