I've been using xampp for a long time and have never encountered a 403 error. I have many projects in my xampp/htdocs/ folder, none of them have ever had any problems until now. I have the craft files in a /craft folder inside htdocs but any time I try to visit files within this directory I am met with the 403 error.
I have been searching a solution for hours now, I edited httpd-vhosts.conf with the following but it didn't help:
<Directory "C:/xampp/xampp/craft/"> Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews AllowOverride all Order Deny,Allow Allow from all Require all granted </Directory>
Again, no other folders within my htdocs directory has ever had any 403 errors. Anyone got a clue as to what is causing this and how to solve it?
