I'm trying to follow the steps here and I'm just missing something basic. After doing this, I get a 403, but I checked the permission on the phpBB code and all the .php files have 755 permissions. I've tried googling this for about 20-30 min and I hope someone here can give me the 2 second rundown on what I'm missing.

The 403 means that somewhere in the path to your phpBB app directory, Nginx and/or Apache don't have the required permissions to access the application. They need execute permission on every directory in the path (execute on directories is what gives permission to access the contents of the directory, which is required to traverse the path).
If you'd like us to look into this and identify where the permissions are wrong, please open a support ticket and we'll be happy to assist.
