XF 1.2 403 Issue for Users

#1
After the initial installation (And import from Mybb) my forum is presenting users who are logged in (not guests) a 403 permission denied error on the front end of the website, however the admin backend is displaying properly.

The forum is running on IIS, I've not been able to identify any error messages through IIS other than the 403, the IIS user has the proper permissions on the xenforo directory,.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Notably, this line is significant:
Code:
<httpErrors existingResponse="PassThrough" />
It's very likely that IIS is overriding the 403 response that XenForo sends for a no permission error. (Which is something you'd need to look at, as it's likely related to the imported permissions, but that would come after sorting this out.)

That appears to have been the case, now I just need to remake the permissions and everything should be set hopefully. My thanks for the assistance.
