    I get that error when I try to delete news posts, I recently moved hosts, and wanted to delete the “Hello Wor’d” Topic that automatically was made when I installed WP.

    My website is http://www.2sided.net btw, if that helps. Any ideas how to fix it?

  • Just search for that error message (admin-ajax) and it will make miracles.

    It’s related to some security settings on your host, if I remember well.

    I searched and read 4 topics, one which talked about editing the .htacess file in wp-admin, well I did that and it didnt help. I looked at other solutions and they didnt help either. I think wordpress should fix this, since other people have the same problem, and release it as a critical update.

    I think wordpress should fix this

    Maybe, but I am not “wordpress”, sorry. This is a forum run by volunteers, not by the developers.

    Did I say you were “wordpress”? No, I was simply stating my opinion. Anyways, still no luck.

    hmm did you use fantistico to install wordpress or FTP? you may now have the correct permissions on the files and directories. this happens when webhosts don’t keep their scripts up to date.

    It also would not hurt to talk to the webhosting company and make sure that support the correct version of PHP and mysql required by wordpress (refer to the wordpress docs)

    also consider that the hello WORLD is inside the database, so if you imported your old database you would have your old posts and the hello world would be gone šŸ™‚

    Peace..

    Yes, I did use fantastico to install it. What should I do? And Hello world was on WP when I installed, then I imported my old WP Backup and Hello World was still there.

    Can I bump this please, I am yet to find a solution. I tried editing the .htacess file but no luck.

    Thats clearly mod_security. And if the other threads you read mentioned it, and provided the proper fix, then they have already pointed you in the right direction.

    I ran into this error a few weeks ago, and pasting this into my .htaccess file seems to do the trick:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    SecFilterScanPOST Off
    </IfModule>
