403 - Forbidden: Access is denied


#1

I have installed the certificate on Windows 2012R2 and IIS8.5. I used the automated installation from https://github.com/Lone-Coder/letsencrypt-win-simple. Everything went fine with the exception that now I have the website saying: Server error, 403 - Forbidden: Access is denied. The permissions to the website’s folder/files are granted to Everyone with Full access.
Any ideas how to fix this?

Check your bindings. Try enabling SNI. hmm. Yeah probably bindings.


#3

The bindings are there. When I’m browsing the website is working, I have the green lock saying the communication with the website is secure.


#5

Did you ever solve this?


#6

OK I solved it. It was due to the changes I had to make to the handler mappings for the certificate verification. Once I reverted the handler mappings this issue disappeared.

Hi Ryan.
I am having the same problem. I am unaware of the handler mappings for certificate verification. Can you give me some pointers please?
Thanks
Neil.
