Following the changes Siteground made to my staging site:
I'm now unable to access the staging site getting the following: 403 - Forbidden Error
You are not allowed to access this address.
If the error persists, please contact the website webmaster.
If you are the webmaster of this site please log in to Cpanel and check the Error Logs. You will find the exact reason for this error there.
Common reasons for this error are:
Incorrect file/directory permissions: Below 644.
In order files to be read by the webserver, their permissions have to be equal or above 644. You can update file permissions with a FTP client or through cPanel's File Manager.
Restrictive Apache directives inside .htaccess file.
There are two Apache directives which can cause this error - 'Deny from' and 'Options -Indexes'.
I updated my Siteground ticket and provided your suggested changes:
Thank you for the update,
I corrected the issue with the 403 forbidden error and you should now be able to access the staging copy.
Updating the home and site URL is what I did earlier and it did not work. I added the following to your wp-config.php file as well, but that didn't yield any results either.
The way the plugin works is not compatible with the staging tool.
Should you need further assistance on our end, don't hesitate contacting us at any time.
Is it possible to have a functional staging site using Pro with Siteground?
