ocPortal newbie here :P
I've been playing with ocPortal on and off for a number of months on my shared webhost. I've probably done this about 20 times.

Now that i'm starting to get used to where things are, today I did another fresh install and started configuring it "for real" this time. But this time i'm running into a permissions problem i've not encountered before:

You don't have permission to access /adminzone/index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I had this happen to me a few times when i've tried to edit certain things, I think once or twice I also got it when hitting the preview button, I didn't take much notice of it at the time and thought it was a glitch… but now that i'm wanting to edit my left menu block, when I make any change to it and hit save, I get the error above and I don't understand why. I've not modified anything to do with permissions anywhere, and I have never had to do this in my previous installations, so I'm not even sure where to begin looking for the problem. Basically all I have done is install, run through the setup wizard, used the theme generator, added the logo and outer background images, and created a couple of pages.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Never mind... I ended up reinstalling (again), seems to be working much smoother now.
