    My site (http://www.mindthevoid.com) has just gone down. As you see, it's displaying:
    --
    "You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Apache/2.2.19 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.19 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at http://www.mindthevoid.com Port 80"

    I recently updated to WordPress 3.2.something, and then went to update some plugins. I don't quite know which plugins, and I can no longer find out... since I can't login, either (going to /wp-login.php returns a 403 error as well.

    I've sent an email to my host, enquiring of the MySQL and PHP versions. But am wondering if it could be anything else, while I wait for their response.

    Thanks muchly!

    It can be due to plugins update or your website host may be implementing host filtering. So add following code in your .htaccess file:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
     SecFilterEngine Off
     SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    Or try disabling your plugins one by one and then check.
