Hi, I changed hosting and moved my Sytist site to the new host. Same domain and I followed all directions and my host also moved my SSL. All seems fine over all except so far, when I tried to change the footer to the site, it gives me a 403 forbidden error when trying to save the changes.

You don't have permission to access /sy-admin/index.php on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Any tips are appreciated, thank you.

Did you updated the sy-config.php file with the new host setting ?
Error 403 sometimes is also also a problem of wrong permission on files or folder

403 errors are usually a result of Mod Security being triggered on the server. Contact your host about that.

Thank you Marco, however I did update all of the config.
Tim, I will do so. They need to turn it off? I now vaguely remember possibly discussing this with you before...

If the 403 errors are coming from mod security, they will need to either turn it off or make some adjustments to mod security.

It was not mod security. I don't even know what it was, my host, Namecheap was looking at it and found something in the index.php and said they fixed it but I don't know what they did lol. I asked but the answer I got I did not understand.
