Python Requests: You Don't Have Permission to Access

If you are facing a "You don't have permission to access" error while making HTTP requests in Python using the Requests library, it means that the server you are trying to access is denying your request.

This error can occur due to various reasons such as:

  • IP blocking by the server
  • Missing authentication credentials
  • Insufficient permissions to access the particular resource
  • etc.

To resolve this error, you can try the following steps:

  1. Check if you have the necessary permissions to access the resource.
  2. Verify if you have provided the correct authentication credentials.
  3. If you are accessing a public API, check if you have exceeded the rate limit.
  4. Try accessing the resource from a different IP address.
  5. If none of these steps work, you can try contacting the server administrator to resolve the issue.

Here is an example code snippet that demonstrates how to handle the "You don't have permission to access" error using the Requests library:

import requests

url = ''
response = requests.get(url)

if response.status_code == 403:
    print("You don't have permission to access the resource.")
elif response.status_code == 404:
    print("The requested resource was not found.")
elif response.status_code == 200:
    print("The resource was successfully accessed.")
    print("An error occurred while accessing the resource.")
