Description:

You have uploaded your files via ftp. When you access your site you get a 403 error - Permission Forbidden.

Possibile Fix #1: You have not uploaded your webfiles to the wwwroot folder. Make sure your files are in the wwwroot folder, not outside the wwwroot folder.
Possibile Fix #2:

This is a common problem, you need to add or rename a "default" page. The "default" page is the web page that is displayed when no web page is specified. For instance, if you enter http://www.yourdomain.com there is no web page specified. http://www.yourdomain.com/page.htm specifies a web page
