406 Error (7 posts)

    I get this error when I try to make a post :
    Not Acceptable
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /wordpress/wp-admin/post.php could not be found on this server.

    Oddly enough, it only happens with this certain post I'm trying to make, so it must have something to do with it.

    But till now I haven't figured out what part of it is causing the problem.

    Any ideas?

    I had a similar problem once, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/51028?replies=3

    I found the problem was with some of the text in the post, and the server was hiccupping over it. I literally went line for line until I found the problem. But never really found an explanation.

    I've been going line by line too, and it seems like it's entire half of the post. It will post either the first half or the second half, but not both together.

    Do you have the word "curl" in your post?

    Nope, I don't

    And like I said, it's kind of odd that it will only accept half my post- either the first half or the second, but not both.

    Is your host running mod_security on your server?

    My webhost, theplanet.com (a.k.a. gzo.com) runs mod_security which is why http://www.richardc020.com/blog/index.php?s=test works and http://www.richardc020.com/blog/index.php?s=pscp returns a 406 error.
