XF 1.1 404 Error

Hi there,

I just installed xenForo, and its working great, although when I type "web.eekcraft.com", I get this error:
You don't have permission to access / on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I have tried changing the URL of my homepage to fix this (As I have heard that this happens because of a missing page/file), although, nothing came out of that. Is there a way to redirect my domain so "web.eekcraft.com", redirects to http://web.eekcraft.com/forums/index.php?portal/

Thanks for your time :)

try the .htaccess file in the root of your site

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} !^www.yoursite.com$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^ http://www.yoursite.com/forums? [R=301]

To answer the original issue, it appears as if you've somehow changed the permissions on your file. Make sure files are able to be read and executed, which is chmod 0644.
