Hello,

Recently I moved my cpanel account to another server, after that, I am getting '403 Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server' error.

How can I fix this error?

It is usually related to folder/file permission. If you are using shared hosting then contact your hosting provider to fix the issue.

Please follow these steps to fix the 403 forbidden error:
  1. .htaccess file
  2. Reset file and folder permissions
  3. Or if you are use WordPress website then kindly disabled the plugin.
If still issue didn't resolve then kindly contact your hosting provider.

Click on . htaccess file and reset all file and folders permission and also disable Wordpress plugins then that error code will go and it'll work fine.

Error is due to ownership or permission which needs to be resolved
Also need to check the error_logs to see why 403 error

Hey there...

it should be due to permission error. Ensure that you folder has correct permission/ownership.
If you are getting this error while trying to make any changes, check modsecurity on your account and try disabling it.
