Support » Installing WordPress » Server Error with WordPress – Help Please!!!!

  • Hi, I’m using wordpress CMS on which has been working fine up until a few days ago.

    When I login to try and update doucuments I get this error upon submitting the updates in the admin system.

    Authorization Required – This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the document requested. Either you supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn’t understand how to supply the credentials required. – Apache/1.3.33 Server at Port 80

    I’ve tried sorting this out through wordpress but have had no joy and suspect that it may be down to the server itself rather than the software thats working on it.

    However I’ve asked my web host and he cannot work out where the error is coming from either. Also it only happens on a few pages within the site.

    Does anybody have any idea what this error could mean and have a solution please?

    Many thanks

  • Could be a problem with your proxy server (talk to your IT department or try another computer. Or you have a directory password protected (talk to your host). Or something is amiss in your web-server (e.g. apache) configuration (talk to your host).

    Note: I edited your Topic where you typed all caps so it doesn’t appear as if you are shouting.

    Thanks Michael, at least I know where i should go to get this sorted. Sorry, didn’t mean to shout, just wanted to be noticed as my host keeps avoiding the issue. Is there anybody you can recommend if I can’t get this sorted and how do I go about moving a wordpress site?

    Thanks again

    Nick for hosting.

    Moving WordPress has info.

    Don’t close you old account until you know you have good backup of your database and wordpress files. See WordPress_Backups.
