Error message on posting – specific post

  • I have a problem where I am unable to post information on a recent Debian advisory.

    It’s completely odd – I can post fine in my blog for everything else, but when I try and repost information from the advisory, then no matter what category was selected, I receive a 403.

    “Forbidden
    You don’t have permission to access /wp-admin/post.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/1.3.33 Server at http://www.securitywatch.co.uk Port 80″

    I find this completely odd and am at a lost as to why. Any suggestions come to mind?

  • Ask your host about their mod_security setup; they might be filtering out your requests due to the presence of suspicious security-type strings.

    My host throws a 406 whenever I write a post with the word “.htaccess” – I have to remove the initial dot to make it work.

    Many thanks for that – problem isolated – now trying to correct for.
