solved “.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable”

And the site is showing “403 Forbidden Error”.
At first, I suspect it’s .htaccess problem, but actually it’s caused by Frontpage Extension.

To solve “.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file, ensure it is readable” follow the steps below:-

* Login into your CPanel account
* Click on “Frontpage Extensions” icon
* Click on “Reinstall extensions” button beside your problem domain.
*If you do not use any frontpage extensions, it’s good to uninstall this extension
* Done. The “.htaccess pcfg_openfile: unable to check htaccess file” problem has been fixed.

** If you are not on CPanel hosting, please contact your system administrator to fix the problem. ***
