I moved a site from one server to another. Site is using variations.

On new server if I open page directly for e.g. http://myserver/en/Pages/default.aspx then it opens the page but if I just go to http://myserver OR http://myserver/Pages/VariationRoot.aspx then I get 403 access denied error.

I am both a farm admin and site collection administrator of this site. It's working fine on previous server. What could be the reason of this problem?
