I've done a custom install for a website for testing purposes and I have received this message when trying to access the site?
Access to localhost was denied
You don't have authorisation to view this page.
HTTP ERROR 403
Any ideas what could cause this?
Does the user running the App Pool have read wrote access to the root of the website directory? Do you have Forms Authentication setup in IIS or AD Authentication?
Try right clicking on the site in iis and select "edit permissions" and give either your app pool full permission (iis apppool/theapppoolname) or iis_iusr etc.
Is the iis site pointing to the CMS folder?
