I have a brand new installation of WordPress 5.9.2 on my VPS, accessed via ssh from macOS for administration and Safari for testing (logging in to the “admin” page).
From the Pages>New Page link, I can enter a title and some sample text, and when I hit the Preview button the results show up nicely.
If instead of typing the text in from my keyboard I paste it in from another window (Emacs, LibreOffice, Preview, doesn’t matter), when I hit the Preview button (or try to save the page, or any other reasonable action), I get a 403-Forbidden-you-don’t-have-access page.
I thought it was because .htaccess was empty (fresh install), but putting the usual ModSecurity incantation into .htaccess makes no difference.
All of the on-line help I can find via search engines points to .htaccess (and makes unreasonable assumptions such as “cPanel access).
Where should I be looking, and what should I be looking for?
