403 error after 6 months of good running, upon hitting "publish" (4 posts)

    I can't post an update to my blog any more: I can acces my web page, change about every wordpress setting there is, FTP to my account and upload everything, but when I Hit "publish" after typing the entry, I get a 403 error, saying I do not have acces to this file.

    What file?
    And how do I solve this? I never changed the acces-rights to any of the files. How do I make wordpress, and me, get acces to the right file again?

    The same entry, or any entry?

    The same entry. I write the entries in word, the copy-paste them in wordpress.
    I just re-did the whole thing in notepad, and now it all works properly.

    Do you have any idea what causes this??

    It will be a word.
    A word that is also a function in php. Something called mod_security which aims to stop code being used where is should not will see words like curl, lynx and others as possible commands and so stop things from being posted.
    As annoying as it might be, it's security related.

    Try again but paste / add a sentence at a time and you'll soon find the culprit.
