Login 403 Error (new one, not the June attacks) (3 posts)

    today, I started to have experience with "wp-login.php .403 error" with the message "Not Acceptable".

    I already had this issue back in June and succesffuly fixed that by adding this one to .htaccess file:

    <Files wp-login.php>
    Order Deny,Allow
    Deny from all
    Allow from all

    But today (after 3 months), the problem occured again. I tried to create the clean new .htaccess file, but that did not help. I tried to add mod.security or directory index or some wp cookie filter to that .htaccess file, but this time none of it worked.

    Do you have some news regarding current attacks on WordPress? If so, what can I do to fix my problem this time?

    Thank you for some answers.

    This sounds like a permissions error or directory error of some sorts...

    Have you tried to disable your .htaccess file entirely to see if you can then access the page as normal ? you can disable it by simply renaming it in FTP. If the site is operating normally after renaming the code in the .htaccess file is the source of the issue. If not I would check the permission on the directory for that file. Does domain.com/wp-admin resolve for you or produce the same error ?

    Again for this error I am leaning towards a server or permission issue, if you can provide more specific information or a URL it may be helpful also.

    Thanks Alva for the first sentences. I tried the things you wrote to me.

    I tried to disable .htaccess file but the problem was not solved. I also tried domain.com/wp-admin but it didn't resolve it.

    I also tried to change permission for that directory from 750 to 755 but again, the problem was not fixed.

    If the URL is helpful for you (or somebody else), here it is: http://www.artofwrestling.cz
