BuddyPress 403 error on group forums

I'm getting 403 forbidden errors on my buddypress install.

I've setup groups, and when you click on the forum I get the error, for example

http://balancedlifeskills.com/groups/stop-bullies/forum/

Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this would be appreciated.

Thanks

    Hiya,

    I reckon it may be something with mod_security as Chris recommended above - or some other htaccess issue. Mind posting your htaccess rules here? We can take a look with ya.

    Thanks!

    Oh, and Chris, got some rep points coming your way as i seen you've been a bit of a warrior on the threads this weekend - thank you!

    Here is the .htaccess

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]

    # uploaded files
    RewriteRule ^files/(.+) wp-includes/ms-files.php?file=$1 [L]

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^ - [L]
    RewriteRule . index.php [L]

    Hmm, that looks about right to me.

    Have you contacted your hosting about any issues?

    Thanks to everyone that gave pointers, I found the problem in the end, bb-config did not have read permissions I then re-installed the forums and they work

    I also updated bp-group-management, this may have been contriibuting too
