403 error on Windows 2008 64bit with IIS7
I’m a system admin and support a few sites including a wordpress site on a shared server.
Basically, what’s happening is when I try to make a new post in wordpress, I get a 403 Forbidden: Access Denied error message.
When I try to do this from inside the web server, I get a wordpress page that says “Are you sure you want to do this?” with a link that says “Please try again”
I’m at a loss. Only one module is installed and tried deactivating it with no results. I see tons of people saying to turn off “Mod_Security” but this is a windows server, so I can’t do that. There is no Mod_Security.
I’ve double checked the wp-config.php file, reset the MySQL DB password to the same password, made sure fastcgi is enabled, restarted the webserver, IIS, made sure the application pool will support 32bit apps, turned off validaterequest in the web.config. Nothing has worked so far and I am at a loss.
ANY help would be much appreciated.
Here are the server specs:
Windows Server 2008 R2 64bit
