Can’t create new categories

  • Hey, I just installed a new WordPress blog and tried to create a new categories while writing a new post. I entered a name and clicked the add button. Than, beneath it, I get the following error message:
    “Not Acceptable
    An appropriate representation of the requested resource /blog/wp-admin/admin-ajax.php could not be found on this server.”
    When I look in that directory, the file DOES exist. What is going wrong? I didn’t touch any code.
    If someone could help me.. :/

    Thanks in advanced,

    disable mod_security — see if that helps:

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    create a text file on your desktop:

    put the following inside it:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off

    name it whatever you like and save the file.

    Upload the file to your wp-admin directory.

    Rename the uploaded file to .htaccess (with the .)

    IF YOU DO HAVE an .htaccess in your wp-admin/ directory:

    Edit it and add:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterInheritance Off

    Ohboy, thanks a lot 😀 There was no .htaccess idd.

    Thanks a lot
