- Plesk for Windows
When opening a website over HTTP in a web-browser, the following error is shown:
You do not have permission to access this document.
OR when opening in a web-browser of Windows Server where the website is hosted:
PLESK_INFO: 403.4 Forbidden The page you are trying to access is secured with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
Module IIS Web Core
Error Code 0x80070005
Requested URL http://example.com:80/
Physical Path C:\Inetpub\vhosts\example.com\httpdocs
Logon Method Not yet determined
Logon User Not yet determined
This error means that the requested Web page requires SSL. Try to browse to the same URL, but use "https:" instead of "http:".
The Require SSL/TLS option is enabled at Domains > example.com > IIS Settings.
Failed to install Let's Encrypt;
Cannot install a plugin for WordPress instance on example.com
Because of the Require SSL/TLS option, the client (browser) forces HTTPS secure connection but the website is served over HTTP and the 403 forbidden error is returned.
To make the website accessible over HTTP, disable the Require SSL/TLS IIS option:
Disable Require SSL/TLS option at Domains > example.com > IIS Settings > Directory Security Settings and apply the changes.
in IIS via an RDP connection
Disable Require SSL option in IIS Manager at Sites > example.com > SSL Settings and apply the changes.
