I holks, I recently ran a ahrefs scan and it threw up dozens of 403 errors like in the attachment. Any thoughts why? Is it an issue I need to be concerned about? Maybe I need to uninstall s2Member if it is corrupting my site? Thank you Roger
403 Errors in ahrefs scan
403 means forbidden so either s2 is blocking like it’s supposed to or perhaps a security plugin or firewall is being a bit aggressive.
It could also be a plugin like SiteGround Security with its “Lock and Protect System Folders” setting.
Are you getting 403s for those images you posted, as well?
