POST to /wordpress/wp-admin/post.php not supported.

  • Everything was working fine until this morning. When I try to post a new entry on my blog (www.AmericanFreethought.com), I get this error message:

    Method Not Implemented

    POST to /wordpress/wp-admin/post.php not supported.

    Any ideas what might be causing this and how to fix it?

    Thanks!
    John

  • Usually this is caused by mod_security. Ask your host to disable it or how to disable it.

    It could also just be a problem with your host, since you say it was previously working fine.

    Either way, you need to ask them about it.

    Well, I tried a little experiment. I tried adding a new post titled “test please disregard” with only the word “test” in the body. I gave it a tag “test” and gave it a category at random. It uploaded no problem. I then deleted that test entry and tried to repost a more wordy entry, but one that was just text (i.e. no hyperlinks, weird characters, images, etc.). I got the “Method Not Implemented” error message.

    I then tried the “test please disregard” test again and no problem.

    Ideas?

    on a very similar theme, i have a blog that ran successfully for 161 posts. suddenly, the posts do not appear on the domain.
    the page loads correctly, except there is no post there.
    from the dashboard i can pull up the posts, see them and edit them.
    i looked at each file i could find for “date modified” to see if there had been a hack….since i was advised the cont had “disappeared” by someone who (on another blog) had objected to it.
    i can find no evidence of something being changed.
    also, i noticed (if this helps at all) that the ico file does not load into the “url line” as it had previously.
    any and all help appreicated. i am very much a non-techy, and the most plain, “left click, right click” kind of guidance will be the most useful.
    please assume that i know >nothing< on coding.
    thank you.

    That’s a *really* good sign that mod_security is causing your problems.

    Try adding this to the top of your .htaccess file:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>

    Might not work, since you might not have access to disable it on that level. Still, worth a try, shouldn’t break anything.

    If it doesn’t help, you’re pretty much boned unless you can get your host to fix the issue.
