    I know this seems vuague folks, but really... I upload a page to my doc root, my server is running, I navigate to the page from the same computer, and it tell sme that I am forbidden from accessing the page.

    Stupid FTP software.....

    the ftp software I am using changed the file permissions from allowing everyone to read the file to only allowing group members and myself to read it.

    Yes, whenever you get a forbidden error or something similar it usually has to do with permissions.
