.doc file shows 403 forbidden instead of serving files

Good morning,

I have several .doc files stored on my internal server. When a browser tries to download one of these files he/she is shown a 403 forbidden. mime.types shows .doc as application/msword.

Any ideas?

It could be a problem with the permissons. Try changing the permissions to something like 755 e.g. chmod 755 *.doc.
