I can't tell exactly what's causing the 403 Forbidden error (that's literally all of the information I have in the browser regarding the error) but this is the scenario:

I navigate to my application page which creates a sub-site and applies a template.

It creates the sub-site fine (and the logs claim that the application of the template was fine).

It applies a web template - who's feature activated event receiver creates sub-directories in the new sub site's document library and applies custom content types to this document library.

Now, like I say the site is created fine - but the document library sub-directories are not there - and the content types are not applied to the doc library - so I'm assuming for some reason (relating to a 403!?) the event receiver is not being fired - or it's not getting that far.

What I've Tried/Looked Into

  • First I checked the ULS logs - there doesn't seem to be any exceptions that I can see that would cause this
  • Checked the content types actually exist in the new sub-site - they do
  • Tested again on dev machine - this is all working fine on my dev machine - so I know that it's not a case of features being deployed to the wrong level of site/site collection etc.
  • Tried removing any code from the featureactivated event receiver, still getting the 403.

Any help HUGELY appreciated.

Please note: I can access the sub site (all it's _layouts pages and the default WelcomePage) without any access problems.

EDIT: Could this be a permissions problem? i.e. creating a sub-site is fine, but creating document sub-folders in an event receiver is not?
