Support » Fixing WordPress » Trouble posting

  • For the last two days I’ve started to experience trouble making posts on my site, The customer service at my host server can’t figure it out.

    This is the message I am getting:


    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/2.0.63 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.63 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at Port 80

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • use your ftp client to go to your site
    see if the “owner” of any of the files or folders are different
    if so, ask your host to reset “owner” to original

    I sent your advice to my server administrator. Keep your fingers crossed that it will work. Thanks for replying. This has been a frustrating two days so far.

    It turned to be one line of text that kept screwing up Word Press. My server guys encountered the same problem when they entered the line into a post. We don’t know why. We took out the link embedded in the line and still got the same result. As long as we didn’t use the line, everything posts just fine. Weird!

    The original line was:

    We ended up going to the Lynx Creek area of the Prescott National Forest.

    If you can figure out that mystery, please let me know.


    it’s the word”Lynx”
    A lot of hackers use that browser for hacking sites

    No way! You mean that word is the reason there has been three of us scratching our heads for two days?

    Thanks…I’ll pass the information on to my web server.

    Moving this to the how-to section.

    Yes, it appears the word Lynx, followed by a space, in a comment or a post will generate an error. Any idea why?

    In discussions here: … we noted you can use a nbsp as a workaround.

    It appears this bug has been fixed in WordPress 3.0.
