I sent the following note off to my ISP a short while ago, but was wondering if anyone else had this problem and worked out a solution:
After three days of repeated efforts I am very frustrated with the way WordPress does not work consistently on my (ISP’s name here) account. I have repeatedly tried to post the same short article only to have it fail each time. Every time I try to save or post the article using the WordPress internal editor I receive this frustrating, incomprehensible, and incompetent message:
“You don't have permission to access /wp-admin/post.php on this server.”
“Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”
“Apache/1.3.41 Server at oflanagans.net Port 80”
I get this message:
• When trying to post only this one particular fairly short message. (See text of message below.)
• When trying to post the message to my installed version of WordPress 2.8.6. That version was installed for me on my account via the Fantastico utility.
Adding to my frustration, I do NOT get the above error message:
• With either of two previously successful postings and one “About” page on the blog supported by this WordPress installation. The blog can be accessed here: http://oflanagans.net/ .
• When I attempted to post the same identical message on a WordPress.com supported blog accessible here: http://timolaguna2010.wordpress.com/ .
Even though I clearly can use my WordPress.com account to post my blog articles successfully I prefer to use my WordPress installation on my ISP’s account. In the long run the latter provides me with greater flexibility and the possibility of gaining revenue.
Here is the title and text of the message I have been trying to post:

The Known Universe by AMNH
That earlier bit by the Monty Python folks was fun and gives a general idea of how big ‘everything out there is’ and how small a part of it we are. Here is another view based on the latest information available. Put together by the American Museum of Natural History, I find it very dramatic. I wanted to share it with you.
The Known Universe takes viewers from the Himalayas through our atmosphere and the inky black of space to the afterglow of the Big Bang. Every star, planet, and quasar seen in the film is possible because of the world's most complete four-dimensional map of the universe, the Digital Universe Atlas that is maintained and updated by astrophysicists at the American Museum of Natural History. This new film updates an earlier version, was created by the Museum, is part of an exhibition called Visions of the Cosmos: From the Milky Ocean to an Evolving Universe, and is showing at the Rubin Museum of Art in Manhattan through May 2010.
Here’s the video. You might need to wait a bit for it to fully load:

I cannot figure out why I can post some articles but not others using WordPress on my ISP’s account. Your help in resolving my problems here will be greatly appreciated.
