PHP

Forbidden

If you've just downloaded the zip file to start along with the PHP project "Shirts 4 Mike", be aware that you may have a problem viewing in your LOCALHOST!

I kept on getting an annoying Forbidden error. After a bit of messing about, I figured out that you have to right click on the files (which will be green!), press properties, the look for the attribute click boxes. Click on the Advanced button on the bottom, then remove the check for "Encrypt contents to secure data". Do this for all the files in the zip folder (highlight them all).

Refresh your browser (127.0.0.1 or localhost), and BINGO! You can follow the tutorial along now :)

Hope this helps somebody else.
