  • This looks like something is blocking POST request to admin-ajax.php file on your website, this file is located in /wp-admin directory, are you sure you aren’t blocking access to this directory anyway? We have seen some users blocking access to this directory by adding a couple of lines in .htaccess file, can you double check that?

    If you’re not blocking access to the file can you please ask your host for their thoughts? It’s possible they have a security rule in place that can cause this.
