Windows Certificate Services ‘certsrv’ Website displays 403.14

KB ID 0001342 


I seem to get all the PKI/Certificate services problems! Yesterday I was trying to use the web enrolment portal on a certificate services server, and could not get in locally, (or remotely) via http, (or https) it simply showed me a 403.14 error.

HTTP Error 403.14 Forbidden


This was an odd one, in IIS Manager select the ‘Certsrv’ virtual directory > Advanced Options > And look at the ‘Path’.

CA Error 403.14

Mine was missing the ‘en-us‘ folder from the end of the path!

Note: You will need to open an administrative command window, and then execute an iisreset command, before the change will take effect.
