Admired
406 Errors (15 posts)

    Hi,
    I downloaded and installed the Admired theme, which is great, but I have one major issue with it.

    Whenever I try to change some of the theme options (e.g. anything in the "General" tab under "Admired Options") and click "Save All Changes" I start getting "406 Not Acceptable" errors whenever accessing the WordPress admin pages until I clear my session cookies and log in again. The changes I try to make are not saved.

    I turned off Apache's MOD_SECURITY and thus verified this is not the issue.

    Any ideas?

    Regards,
    Eran

    Update: After turning off MOD_SECURITY, I have found out that this still happens when forcing all admin pages to use SSL (FORCE_SSL_ADMIN - http://codex.wordpress.org/Administration_Over_SSL). If I turn it off then I can save changes.

    Could anyone please confirm?
    Could this issue be fixed?

    Yes, I've tried this and several other similar suggestions I found and none of them helped.
    Like I said, the situation now is that MOD_SECURITY is completely off and this still happens when the admin pages are forced to use SSL.

    I am assuming you have a .htaccess file.

    Have you tried this fix?

    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    </IfModule>

    Tried it now.
    Still the same. Works when SSL is disabled, shows constant 406 errors after saving a theme option when SSL is forced on admin pages.

    Are the WordPress folders password protected?

    No.
    It's a pretty standard setup, and everything else works perfect except when I use this theme and try to save changes.

    Alright and have you disabled the MOD_SECURITY your self in the .htaccess or did your hosting do that for you. I know there are different versions and some can only be done by the host regardless of what is in the .htaccess

    After I thought I failed doing it myself (because it didn't help), I asked my host to turn it off for me...

    Do you get the same 406 errors when trying to upload files or just in the Theme Options ?

    Only when saving the theme options.
    I forced SSL on the admin pages, uploaded a file with SSL enabled which worked as expected, and then tried to save the theme options which failed with:

    Not Acceptable
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /blog/wp-admin/options.php could not be found on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I honestly appreciate the help!

    How about the permalinks what are they set to and were they changed? Your issue seems to be a bit unique

    The structure is "/%year%/%monthnum%/%postname%/" and the URLs were not changed.
    This is a new site, which I reinstalled 3 times from scratch just to make sure that the issue reproduces (it does reproduce).
