Web page will not load but receiving email alerts

Hello,
updated to php 7.3.11 to get my application working again (i was affected by the auto-update which broke many others). When i run validate, it keeps complaining about a symbolic link which I keep deleting and recreating. The webpage presents a HTTP 403 error in Internet Explorer and in Chrome, displays php scripting

bash-4.2$ ./validate.php
