My goal in replying to posts is to help you become a better programmer, including learning how to debug your own code and research problems. For that reason, rather than posting the solution, I reply with tips and hints on how to find the solution yourself. See below for useful links when you get stuck.

Yes, I do have an idea.

What I did was to simply open the page in my browser (Opera), open up the development tools (Dragonfly), and then click on the "Network" tab. Once I reloaded the page, I tested submitting an URL for shrinking, and this was the HTTP response I got from the server:
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
Date: Mon, 21 Jan 2013 13:34:23 GMT
Server: Apache
Content-Length: 339
Keep-Alive: timeout=5, max=75
Connection: Keep-Alive
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

<title>403 Forbidden</title>
<p>You don't have permission to access /Shortener/ajax.php
on this server.</p>
<p>Additionally, a 404 Not Found
error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.</p>

Basic debugging, in other words. Now that I've told you how to do this, I'm sure you can do it on your own the next time. Right? ;)

PS: Also, I recommend seeing the "How to ask questions" link in Jessica's signature above.
