  • I keep getting the following error message when I try to run the spellchecker:

    Error response: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN”>
    <HTML><HEAD> <TITLE>406 Not Acceptable</TITLE> </HEAD><BODY> <H1>Not Acceptable</H1> An appropriate

    representation of the requested resource /wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/spellchecker/rpc.php could not be found on

    this server.<P> <HR> <ADDRESS>Apache/1.3.41 Server at Port 80</ADDRESS>


    I looked for the file that it refers to, and it definitely is on the server.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • That looks like an “error” caused by your web host’s server having enabled a specific add on for the Apache web server, which is called mod_security.

    Basically, the spell check routine is triggering a false positive by that module.

    There is a workaround that’ll probably work. Take a look at this post and later posts in that thread for details.

    I’m hesitant to suggest a specific course of action, other than checking with your web hosting provider and seeing what they’ll do or recommend.
