Support » Plugin: PowerPress Podcasting plugin by Blubrry » Bad Request (When Ever Saving Settings)

  • KaeGiacona


    When saving settings in Advanced Mode I receive the following message:

    “Bad Request
    Your browser sent a request that this server could not understand.”

    I have disabled and reinstalled the plug in and have the same issue.

    I’m running Version 7.1.1.

    I have contacted my host and they have looked into and haven’t found anything that should be causing the action on there end.

    My error log states as follows:

    “[01-Nov-2017 21:10:31 UTC] PHP Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 100663296 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 7680 bytes) in /home/indrecor/ on line 2833”

    I’d appreciate any help on this. I dig the app and I’m hoping to be able to use it.

    Hello @kaegiacona,

    We have been working on this problem for a while and we believe we have a solution in our next update. If you are familiar with how to install plugins manually, please download this version and see if it solves the problem:

    It appears ModSecurity is blocking one of the new fields we added for iOS11, either it is the itunes-title or the new itunes-nst (number, season and type) fields. The next update we renamed these fields to avoid ModSecurity from blocking them.

    If you have the ability to turn off Mod security, that also fixes the problem.




    I was unable to access Mod security to turn it off, but the manual installation seems to have corrected the issue.
