    Hi there,

    Thanks for trying out PhastPress.

    The problem you’re seeing is due to mod_security, a security plugin that your web hoster is using. Mod_security is making URLs like these inaccessible:

    …/wp-content/plugins/phastpress/phast.php?service=scripts&src=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google-analytics.com%2Fanalytics.js&cacheMarker=218127

    Because I’ve seen similar issues before, I’ll see if I can fix this in PhastPress somehow, by changing the URLs so they don’t trigger mod_security. I’ll have a look at it coming weekend and get back to you.

    Alternatively, you can ask your web hosting provider to exclude URLs starting with …/wp-content/plugins/phastpress/phast.php from mod_security.

    Thanks for your prompt reply. I was able to get the host to whitelist the URLs for now, do you know if the Urls are dynamic in that they may change?

    Yes, they are dynamic, and they will change. So all URLs containing (or beginning with) wp-content/plugins/phastpress/phast.php should be whitelisted.

    So I need to see if they will whitelist wp-content/plugins/phastpress/phast.php*

    Looks like the whitelisting worked out. Great!

    I started work on mitigating this in the plug-in as well, but it’s not done for all functionality yet. As it’s working for you now, I’ll mark this as resolved.

    If you’re happy with the results on your site, I’d much appreciate it if you left a review here. 🙂

    Yeah so far so good, you can mark it as closed
