Support » Fixing WordPress » 403/500 error when posting comment when user isn’t logged in

  • I have installed wordpress.org version 2.7.1.
    When I try to post a comment without being logged in, I get the 403 server error message i.e
    ” 403 – Forbidden: Access is denied.
    You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied”
    or the 500 server error message i.e
    ” 500 – Internal server error.
    There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed”.
    And the strange thing is I don’t get it the first time I post the comment without being logged in but I get it from the second time.

    I think this is a server authentication issue – I tried several things to fix this.
    1) My wordpress is installed on godaddy and i enabled anonymous authentication but that didn’t work.
    2) I tried the .htaccess file – which seemed to have resolved 403 errors during log -in but in vain.
    3) I tried to fix it at the code level but couldn’t do it.

    I would be grateful to anyone who could help me with this.
    Thank you.
