2.13.4.1.3. 403 error when opening XML file

If upon opening XML-file error 403 occurs, it is worth checking the file directives .htaccess, which can be placed in the directory next to the desired XML-file and in parent directories. The problem occurs due to the fact that by default OpenCart places the file in some directories .htaccess with directives to deny access to all files without exception... For example, in the file /system/.htaccess in most cases, blocking requests is indicated like this:

<Files *.*>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
</Files>

To provide access to all XML-files in the directory and its subdirectories (for example, /system/storage/download/ etc.) you need using file manager or any FTP client modify file .htaccessby adding its directives like this:

<Files *.*>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
</Files>
<Files *.xml>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow  from all
</Files>
