I am having one problem with this site in joomla. I just change the site global configuration from admin beside that working to submit a form to send mail. I don,t know the reason behind now my site is showing restricted access. May be due to change of global configuration as I have changed the Use Apache mod_rewrite option from no to yes, though after that I have worked and refresh the page it was showing clearly now it is showing restricted access only. unable to understand what is going on.Please help me in this.
thanks in advance.

At the top of every .php file in a Joomla site you will see something similar to this:
This is here to prevent anyone accessing the file directly via the browser. It basically says: If the _JEXEC constant is not defined, kill the process, _JEXEC is set when the application is run, it happens in the sites main index.php file near the top:
If this is removed, it will definetely cause those issues, but most likely the error is resulting from a component or plugin that is published in the CMS.
If you have installed a plugin that was meant for Joomla 1.0, you will see an error like this, this happens because rather that looking for _JEXEC being set, it looks for something like _VALID_MOS, in this case, try switching legacy mode plugin on.
If Legacy mode does not fix your issue, check the website template to ensure the defined(‘_JEXEC’) or die(‘Restricted Access’); line is not causing issues, comment it out with a # or // and test that.
You could try switching the Joomla debug on, but there is no guarantee that will help.
If you are really stuck, you can try one of the following:
1) Backup database, then disable all of the plugins one by one (I noticed you still have access to the administrator area), then either re-enable the plugins or restore the database.
2) I once had to do a find and replace of every plugin in a CMS, I replaced the string:
I done this using PHP and it allowed me to pinpoint exactly which file was throwing the error. I obviously backed up the site file structure first, so I simply unzipped the backup and deleted the modified files later.

Publishers can designate which users see which records according to the Access Policy configured by the geoportal’s host organization. Access is controlled at the resource level through the Administration user interface.
Caution: Restricting user access to resources only restricts who can see the resource. It does not determine user access to the actual data/web service itself.
There are three types of security configurations in the geoportal. Each is described below, with instructions for how to set the access level for a resource if the geoportal’s host organization has chose that Access Policy. IMPORTANT: If you are applying the Public-Protected or Restricted policy and use Geoportal Server version 1.0, 1.1, or 1.1.1, please download and apply the Restricted Metadata HTTP 401 Patch.
If the Access Policy is set to Unrestricted, then all approved or reviewed records in the geoportal are searchable for all users. In the Administration tab, there is no column for Access in the table of resources.
If the Access Policy is set to Public-Protected, then all resources by default are public to all users, unless the resource is restricted to one specific group, predefined in the geoportal configuration. This means that if you are a user in that specified group, you will see restricted resources that users who are not in your group will not see. If you are a publisher, you can set the access level of your resource to Restricted, which will make it visible only to this group. On the Manage Resources page, you’ll notice a column in the table of resources titled Access. To set a resource’s access level, check the checkbox next to the resource and select Set Access Level from the dropdown list above the table. Two radial buttons appear, and there you can determine if the resource should be Unrestricted (all users can see the resource) or Restricted (only the specific group configured by the host organization can access it).
If the Access Policy is set to Restricted, then different groups can access different resources. For example, Resource A can be restricted for access by Group 1 and Group 2, while Resource B can be restricted for access only by Group 3. This is different from the Public-Protected model because there can be different groups accessing different records. If you are a publisher, you can designate which groups should see your resource by going to the Administration tab, checking the checkbox next to the resource, and selecting Set Access Level from the dropdown list above the table. A list of groups defined in the host organizations directory. The publisher checks the boxes next to the groups that should have access to the resource. The resource will not appear in search results if a user doing the search does not belong to that group.
