The permissions were changed over the weekend, not by me, resulting in '403' errors (forbidden) and now... I can't access the admin sections on the sites. I had almost reached a decision about the sites in favour of keeping them on my server with some major changes, but now I can't even get into it. Which means I can't change the settings back on INAP to accepting new submissions. And of course I am at work and unable to do anything about it. I'm going to brave the efiction forums and a couple of help communities later today to see if this is a known problem (and therefore fixable) but it may result in the sites coming down and being re-uploaded (possibly to a different directory, meaning a new URL).
It's like some kind a sign isn't it?
