Domain /root no access

I got from someone else a Cpanel handed over and have this prolems…

  1. after a login it seems that passwords get not saved, I have to insert them again in ftp programs or notepad++ (and in notepad++ its anoying everytime)

  2. I want to place images in folders, available to download … domain/folder/images, but the root is not available, you get an error 403

The website is an open cart web, and has maybe these modifications from the owners…

Is there an .htaccess file in the root of the domain? If so, can you post what’s in it?

# 1.To use URL Alias you need to be running apache with mod_rewrite enabled. 

# 2. In your opencart directory rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess.

# SEO URL Settings

# If your opencart installation does not run on the main web folder make sure you folder it does run in ie. / becomes /shop/

### Additional Settings that may need to be enabled for some servers 
### Uncomment the commands by removing the # sign in front of it.
### If you get an "Internal Server Error 500" after enabling any of the following settings, restore the # as this means your host doesn't allow that.

# 1. If your cart only allows you to add one item at a time, it is possible register_globals is on. This may work to disable it:
# php_flag register_globals off

# 2. If your cart has magic quotes enabled, This may work to disable it:
# php_flag magic_quotes_gpc Off

# 3. Set max upload file size. Most hosts will limit this and not allow it to be overridden but you can try
# php_value upload_max_filesize 999M

# 4. set max post size. uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields
# php_value post_max_size 999M

# 5. set max time script can take. uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields
# php_value max_execution_time 200

# 6. set max time for input to be recieved. Uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields
# php_value max_input_time 200

# 7. disable open_basedir limitations
# php_admin_value open_basedir none

As you see i tried and put # before the rewrite rule…but its not that…

Do you want to just download the images, or do you want people to browse the images directories in their browser? If it’s former I’ve no idea what’s causing the 403, if it’s latter you need to comment/remove Options -Indexes (or replace with Options +Indexes if that doesn’t work).
