    Hi,

    Just wondering if there’s anything wrong with my settings?
    This error recently appeared on my site backend. Thank you for your help.

    “The REST API encountered an unexpected result.

    The REST API is one way WordPress, and other applications, communicate with the server. One example is the block editor screen, which relies on this to display, and save, your posts and pages.

    The REST API call gave the following unexpected result: (403)
    You have been banned from this site.
    If you think there has been a mistake, please contact the administrator via proxy server.”

    What do you have for the Whitelist setting? It should include the IP address of your server, and any proxy servers that can be detected. If for some reason the whitelist setting does not include your IP(s), or the correct IP(s), then that would explain the REST API error.
