2.13.4.1.3. 403 error when opening XML file

If upon opening XML -file error 403 occurs, it is worth checking the file directives .htaccess , which can be placed in the directory next to the desired XML -file and in parent directories. The problem occurs due to the fact that by default OpenCart places the file in some directories .htaccess with directives to deny access to all files without exception . For example, in the file /system/.htaccess in most cases, blocking of requests is indicated like this:

 < Files *.*>  Order  Deny , Allow  Deny from  all  Files > 

To provide access to all XML -files in the directory and its subdirectories (for example, /system/storage/download/ etc.) you need using filemanager or any FTPclient modify file .htaccess by adding its directives like this:

 < Files *.*>  Order  Deny , Allow  Deny from  all  Files > < Files *.xml>  Order  Allow , Deny  Allow from  all  Files >
