403 Forbidden on New Clean Install

By jrpmedia, 5 years ago. Last reply by Greg Priday, 5 years ago.


I have just stated a new fresh, clean, empty wordpress site.
I’ve added 3 test posts.
I get 403 Forbidden whenever I go to Appearance -> Customise

As this is a new empty site essentially with no other plugins … I’m a bit confused.
Should I use the FOCUS Theme with WP 4.7.2 or is it unstable?

Happy to let you play all over it at this early stage.

Thanks for your help,

    Hi James

    This isn’t a known issue. Do you get the same problem when you switch to a default WordPress theme?
