    It was just brought to my attention by one of my readers that they are unable to post a comment. Comments were working fine up to this point and I just tried posting a test comment and this is the error message I got:
    You don't have permission to access /blog/wp-comments-post.php on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
    Apache/2.2.15 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.15 OpenSSL/0.9.8n DAV/2 mod_fcgid/2.3.5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at successaffiliatemarketing.com Port 80

    I would be grateful for any help or suggestions to solve this problem. I've only installed one new plug-in since this happened and I did deactivate it.

    My blog is located at http://successaffiliatemarketing.com

    Check the folder and file permissions in your blog folder.

    Hi esmi, Could you please elaborate as I'm not very technical.

    Make sure that the permissions for wp-comments-post.php are set to 644 and the permissions for /blog/ are set to 755 . See this for more info:

    You can mark this issue resolved. I thank you for the help but the problem was on the server side and they have corrected it.
