    When I create a subdomain (via CPANEL) on my website, it gives me a 403 error. I have waited a couple days, tried different browsers, have removed and readded the subdomain and tried adding another subdomain.

    So when I make a subdomain:
    Forbidden

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

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

    How do I fix this?

    Are you sure that you have permission from your host to create sub-domains? Have you asked your host about this error?

    What are the chmod permissions of the directory and the files within it? If you don't know them, you should be able to check them through your FTP program. If you can't figure that out please tell us which FTP program you are using.

    The demand does not identify the file name. Or the directory or the file does not have the authorization that allows the pages to be viewed from the web. This condition display the subdomain hence subdomain giving 403 forbidden error.
