Support » Fixing WordPress » 403 Error on Post

  • Sometimes when I attempt to write a post/page, I get a 403 error:

    You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/post.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Seen it before?

    You may have had a word in there which represents an executable, such as “curl”.

    The problem is actually caused by over-zealous server-side security (such as mod_security) which blocks PHP executables (such as “curl”) from being sent via POST requests.
