Support » Plugin: Simply Static » Encountering a 403 Error

  • Resolved lechon


    I was able to install and everything looked fine, but it won’t let me adjust settings anywhere. If I change a setting and try to save it, it will produce a 403 error. I looked into permissions but everything is good on my end.
    Sounds like a great plugin, I hope you can help.

  • Tried everything I could think of, from file permissions 777 etc. to new directories.
    Nothing seems to work.

    Hi lechon,

    If you could, try downloading the most recent version of Simply Static. I updated the default Temporary Files Directory in v2.0.4, which should help. Double-check that the value in the text field matches the Default value. If it doesn’t, copy it into the text field and Save your settings.

    That should help with the temporary files issue. I’m not sure what would be causing the 403 errors when trying to change settings. If you’re still encountering that issue I’d take a look at your apache logs and see if there are any helpful error messages there.
