webaccess not working after upgrade to gw18


we just upgraded our single server system from GW 2014 ( where everything was working ) to Groupwise 18.

Everything seems ok, except webaccess.

http connections are refused, which I understand is the way it is supposed to be with GW 18.

However, also https do not work and lead to the following error:

Server Error
403 - Forbidden: Access is denied.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.

Any help is very much appreciated.

After doing the WebAccess install did you run the Configure option?
