Can't access RWW - HTTP 403 Forbidden

I can't access RWW (either externally or internally). If accessed internally (https://servername/remote) I get the 403 Forbidden error message. If I remove the SSL (https) requirement, I get the same message. I can access OWA internally and remotely only by using the administrators account and no other. If I use a 'regular' account, they aren't granted access. This was working before, but, had a corrupt metabase file in IIS. Got that repaired and now RWW, OWA and Companyweb aren't working... Please help. I'd like to start first with the RWW/OWA issue. Thanks.

Try giving the IUSR_<servername> access to the folder where the website resides.  Or allow anonymous access.

I went to the Default Web Site - Authentication Methods and saw that Enable Anonymous Access is already checked off w/the ISUR_username & password there.  Any other suggestions?

Correction to above: IUSR_servername (not ISUR_username)...

From IIS, open up the properties page of this website (not the root), go to Directory Security.

Remove Enable anonymoous access then tick Integrated Windows authentication.  This should ask for a username and password when you access the page.  Type in any valid user and password (no admin access) and see if you can access the page.

If not, this means that somewhere either folder/file access is limited to Administrator.

One of the contributing factors was that the ASP.NET was set to the wrong version, 2.0.5 instead of 1.1.4. Things are working now... Thanks for the help.
