    Hi Markus

    That’s a simple permissions problem, if you login via ftp or if you have cpanel installed just change the permissions on that folder to 755 and you should be good to go.

    Basically your hosting isnt allowing access to that folder and that’s why the error is occurring, changing it to 755 will allow access to that folder and as I said the problem should go away.

    Please let me know if you need any further help with this.
