Support » Plugin: Redirection » Something went wrong

  • Resolved richard


    Hi there,

    Odd one, looks like theres an error, i get this:

    Something went wrong 🙁

    Your server returned a 403 Forbidden error which may indicate the request was blocked. Are you using a firewall or a security plugin like mod_security?

    If you are unable to get anything working then Redirection may have difficulty communicating with your server. You can try manually changing this setting:

    Take a look at the plugin status. It may be able to identify and “magic fix” the problem.
    Redirection is unable to talk to your REST API. If you have disabled it then you will need to enable it.
    Security software may be blocking Redirection. You will need to configure this to allow REST API requests.
    Caching software, in particular Cloudflare, can cache the wrong thing. Try clearing all your caches.
    Please temporarily disable other plugins! This fixes so many problems.

    I have 4 websites, generally the same plugin with re-direction, the other 3 were fine. Ive cleared the caching (cloudflare) but i havent gone any further than that, any ideas would be great? thank you
