  • Forbidden?

    Hello All

    Need some help please, the last couple of weeks I have noticed a problem with my forum, its only occured recently and never had this problem before.

    Long story short I was making a post on the forum and I posted it and it went straight to an Forbidden - Apache page, it took me a while to figure out what was causing it and it was a word "access" , I removed that word and it posted fine.

    Now other members are having problems when making posts or PM's and they are getting the same Forbidden issue.

    Has anyone has this happen to them before? Its really random as I have not had it happen since yet other members are!

    Thank you

    Sounds like it could be a mod_security issue (something you will have to have your host resolve), however it's hard to tell without seeing the exact error. See if you can find it in your error_logs (if you don't know where those are, ask your host).

    Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
