    Hi,
    I took full backups of my websites from hostgator. They use apache. New hosting company uses litespeed. This is my 3rd hosting company in a nearer location and they cannot find a solution. All websites that I migrate by using cpanel backup have same 403 error and they could not find a solution. Your help is appreciated and I will pass solution to them to be applied. Kind regards,

    please check and adjust following settings:
    lsws web admin->Serer->Security->File Access
    see if it can resolve your issue.

    We fixed this issue this morning, please ask your host to update to the latest 4.2.16 build.

    Hi, many thanks for your reply too. I was advised to go to WHM panel and do
    "WHM / Home » Service Configuration » Configure PHP and suEXEC

    PHP 5 Handler : cgi
    Apache suEXEC : On"
    I also wrote this advice to them. No need to do the above if they update?

    If there is a PHP suEXEC configuration issue, it is still need to be fixed.
    but, should upgrade to latest 4.2.16 as well.

    They upgraded but it didn't solve the problem as well. I need to migrate manually. Thanks for help,

    are all files 403 error ? or only part of pages has problem ?

    Hi !
    My web host has recently been bought by another company, and now that they have transferred all my sites to their own server hardware (LiteSpeed rather than Apache), I keep finding little glitches which need to be sorted out :-(.
    Today’s problem is that when I try to add a new filter to the Actions and Filters box on one of my sites, the server won’t permit it to be added – it throws a 403 (forbidden) error. (Existing filters on my other sites still work okay on the new server – but at this stage I’m not game to try changing/adding to them.)
