Using Tell A Friend v 1.6 on a Joomla 2.5 site.  On submission I'm getting:

You don't have permission to access /modules/mod_S5tellafriend/tellafriend.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

Permissions on all files in the modules/mod_S5tellafriend folder are 644.  I turned off sefURLs and that didn't resolve.

Site is

Any thoughts?

An error stating that you are not authorized to access a file is generally an ownership problem on your server. It means that the public "nobody" user is not allowed to access that file. You might need the chmod setting hire than 644 or contact your hosting provider to see why the file is inaccessible, it's something that they would need to correct. A permission issue is not a coding issue of the module.
