What's a "forbidden" or "403" error when syncing with MobileMe/iDisk? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I just needed to switch my me.com account to a prestine new one. After changing the me.com username in the settings of either iPhone and Mac in OF I do get when syncing:

Unable to perfom WebDAV operation.
The idisk.me.com server returned "forbidden" (403) in response to a request to "PROPFIND /MYUSERNAME/Documents/OmniFocus.ofocus".

Any ideas?

Best
Oliver

Are your settings in the MobileMe or the Advanced section?
Did you switch over your MobileMe account name in System Preferences also?

Yes
 
I have the exact same problem after I use a new username in mobile me. Any help is appreciated.

UPDATE: I think I was still able to sync after having a new username in me.com and the problem only really started after I downloaded the latest update in OMF>

Can you put files on your iDisk directly from the Finder or the MobileMe website?

Also, check your keychain for any stored passwords for your old MobileMe account and remove them.
 
Lizard, thank you for the suggestion. I deleted anything in reference to my old user name in my me.com account appearing in Keychain and was able to sync OMFocus on iMac with me.com.

I then deleted OMF on my iPhone and re-installed it. When I tried to sync the OMF on my iPhone I still get the same message "Unable to synchronize database with server. Unable to perform WebDav Operation. The idisk.me.com server returned "forbidden" (40 in response to a request to "PROPFIND ..........etc."

So I guess the problem is something in the iPhone which prevents OMF to sync with my new user name me.com account.

OF on my iMac (at work) syncs with iDisk which in turns sync with my Mac Book Pro (at home) without problem. So the problem is not with iDisk but with the OF on iPhone.

Please HELP ! I have been spending way too much time on this at the expense of my work.

p.s. Just a thought - any point in erasing all content and settings of my iPhone by going to Settings - Reset - Erase all Content and Settings ?

Hi

I have now got two MobileMe accounts. I wanted to use the new one for syncing to iPod Touch but I can't because of the Forbidden (403) error.

I don't wish to remove stored passwords for my "old" MobileMe account.

I have removed the password for the "old" MobileMe account itself, but there are quite a few others relating to that one. Removing the old account password has not made syncing possible.

I'm now syncing using Bonjour instead which is far from ideal.
 
When trying to sync with Mobileme I get an error message:

The idisk.me.com server returned "forbidden" (403) in response to a request to PROPFIND

Does anyone know what this error message means and how to resolve?
