    Hi guys,

    hoping there's someone here that can assist. I'm in the process of migrating a website from .co.za to .com.au. I made a backup in cPanel and then restored it but I'm getting a Error 403 Permission denied error. I did a bit of reading and it comes down to the .htaccess file. So I'll start off with what my working site's code is now:

    I have a few defined "tags". The below is just an example:

    define("_SITE_ADDRESS", "/");

    I refer to links as follow:

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo _SITE_ADDRESS ?>css/other/index/jquery-ui.css">

    So at the end it should look at /css/other/index/jquery-ui.css


    My current cPanel uses Multi PHP Manager which I believe uses a "ea" php variance. The new hosting uses PHP Selector which uses "alt" php variance. The working site has the following code in .htaccess:

    AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php56 .php .php5 .phtml

    But because of the "ea" I'm getting the error. Once I change this to "alt" the error goes away but nothing on my page loads. I then inspect the page and it comes up with several errors like

    "GET https://www.website.com.au/_SITE_ADDRESScss/other......"
    "Uncaught ReferenceError: $ is not defined at xxxxx.php:9 anonymous) @xxxx.php:9"

    So it doesn't seem to be pulling my "tags" into the page. Any idea what I can do to fix this? I'm not a developer but have a little understanding of these things.
