Instalation of Suite CRM 7.1.2

I tried installing the new version of Suite CRM, when I go to the appropriate page I get the following error:
Forbidden
You don’t have permission to access /crm/suitecrm-7.1.2-max/ on this server.
I uploaded it as a zipped file and then unzipped it using the linux servers unzip in Cpanel.
I tried changing some read write permsiions but that only caused additional errors. Any suggestions?

Hi there,

This sounds like a permissions issue. Is your server Ubuntu linux/CentOS or another distribution? The permissions we would recommend are as follows:

sudo chown -R [owner]:[group] .

sudo chmod -R 755 .

sudo chmod -R 775 cache custom modules themes data upload config_override.php

Where the owner/group are that of your web server.

Thanks,

Will.
