have no idea what "censor suite" is.

check the chmod file permissions .

all of the php files should be set to 644 and all of the folders should be set to 755
except for the cache, store, and images/avatars/upload folders and they should be set to 777


then delete everything from the cache folder except for the index and htaccess files.

all three of those should be set to 777

however, that is not causing the problem.

check with your host about ownership of the files/folders.

a 403 error is a permissions error. you do not have permission to access the files on the server.

phpBB 3.2 uses extensions, mods went out the door with the advent of 3.1. Have you contacted the author of the word censor and do you have a link to it please?

I'm guessing it's this which was written for 3.0.

You'll have to upload new versions of all the files you edited and then clear the cache.

Yes that is what I did exactly, but I can't clear cache as I can't access ACP. Please, what can I do about this??

Use ftp to delete the production folder of the cache folder

Did you first replace all the edited files? And undo any database edits?

the point is that you can NOT use that MOD at all. you must undo whatever you did to install that MOD before anything will work right.

Did you install the mod on a 3.0.x forum? or on a 3.1 or 3.2 forum?
You mentioned having a old backup. Is this a complete backup (implying that you have a backup of the database)?
If so, is it recent enough to restore that backup?

I didn't make any changes on the DB or does that affects it to?
