why am I getting this message: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied?
I just tried to access a website that I regularly access several times a day. However, this evening I received the following message: 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
I have never seen this before, and have no idea what it means, or how to access the site. Does it have anything to do with my security settings? Help. I belong to the site, and need to access it.
