Images returning 403 in panel out of nowhere on kirby 2 site

Hey there! I just got a support request for a site I made a while back using Kirby 2. This one has me stumped to be honest! When an image is loaded into the files sidebar, it can’t be viewed. Clicking on it returns a 403 error, and subsequently doesn’t load on the published page. If I FTP into the server, the image has uploaded and can be viewed fine. This seems to have started happening for no reason. Any idea what’s going on here? I tried updating PHP, and restarting the server…

I should add that this is only happening with newly uploaded images. All old images are fine.

Hm, a file permissions problem maybe with the files not readable by the Apache?

I had that thought. That is worrying because it’s a managed host, and I’ve never touched the permissions myself. In any case, some combination of me poking around or maybe the wind blowing the right direction has fixed the issue.
