    help question Can't install Zen. Forbidden message

    I am trying to install ZC on a brand new server. I had a cart for many years so this should be easy. However, after loading the files into the /catalog on my server I went to install. I immediately get the following error message:

    " Forbidden
    You don't have permission to access /global-bin/php.cgi/catalog/zc_install/index.php on this server.


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Apache/1.3.42 Server at coloramapaint.com Port 80"

    Please help. I do not even have a "global-bin", but I do have a "cgi-bin"

    Thank you

    Rick

    <opinion>You can get SO much more from SO many hosts for WAY less money.</opinion>
    If you thought you were installing this to the root of the site, it didn't work. Could be the wizards at AT&T don't have that new server quite right yet.
    Did you read the posting tips?!?

    We had a client in california hosting with AT&T paying SIXTY DOLLARS A MONTH for simple website hosting.

    Not only was their support non-existant, but their servers were set up in the mid fourteenth century and haven't been updated since.

    Do yourself a BIG favour... move somewhere else (NOT GoDaddy, or FastHosts or 1&1 - who are in the same "nest" as AT&T.)
