    Hi Everyone,

    I am running a VPS with Kloxo installed. I am having issues with accessing the options.php, post.php and a few others. They seem to be very random in behaviour.

    I have assigned apache user and group of the files as I found that running as the webhost user didn’t work.

    An example of the error is You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/post.php on this server.

    This happens when I try to make a change to a post however, if I make a new post I can edit that. The same with changing template settings some allow access others dont. I am not to sure if mod_security is installed on the server, I have looked and the files are there and are set to ON however many people say Kloxo dosen’t run it.

    Here is the .htaccess file I have. It includes the mod_security bypass.

    # BEGIN WordPress
    # WPhtc: Begin Custom htaccess
    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    # WPhtc: End Custom htaccess
    # WPhtC: Disable ServerSignature on generated error pages
    ServerSignature Off
    # WPhtC: Disable directory browsing
    Options All -Indexes

    # WPhtC: Protect WP-config.php
    <files wp-config.php>
    order allow,deny
    deny from all
    # WPhtC: Protect .htaccess file
    <files ~ "^.*\.([Hh][Tt][Aa])">
    order allow,deny
    deny from all

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} .wp-comments-post\.php*

    RewriteRule (.*) ^http://%{REMOTE_ADDR}/$ [R=301,L]
    # WPhtC: Setting mod_gzip

    BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4 gzip-only-text/html
    BrowserMatch ^Mozilla/4.0[678] no-gzip
    BrowserMatch bMSIE !no-gzip !gzip-only-text/html
    Header append Vary User-Agent env=!dont-vary
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteBase /
    RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
    RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
    # END WordPress

    Anyone have any suggestions, I can add a test account if you need to try things.
