  • Error: Can't edit forum styles via AdminCP

    I am getting a 404 or a "Precondition Failed" when trying to edit the stylevars for my new style. I've re-uploaded text files in ASCII, tried making new stylesheets (for the front end, which didn't work) and I'm out of ideas. This is the URL that I'm having issues with. Is it a permissions issue?

    forum/admincp/css.php?do=update (yes the file exists on the server

    Thanks so much.

    Enable phpinfo in the Admin CP, then provide the URL to your forums. This may help us troubleshoot this problem.

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options -> Public phpinfo() Display Enabled

        Reposting my response from your ticket here:
        The most likely cause of this response is a mod_security setting. The mod_security module will send this response when a portion of the web request data that one of our servers received is likely to be malicious.

        If it is necessary to disable this protective feature you can do this using a .htaccess directive:

        <IfModule mod_security.c>
        SecFilterEngine Off
        SecFilterScanPOST Off

        Please Note: This will disable mod_security for the directory that the .htaccess file is located in, and the subdirectories below the .htaccess file. If you wish to enable it for subdirectories you can do so by using the following .htaccess directive:

        SecFilterEngine On
