I keep getting a sporadic “403 Forbidden: Access is denied” error message on my sites. It is not specific to just one site and it is extremely intermittent.
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden Content-Type: text/html Server: Microsoft-IIS/7.5 X-Powered-By: ASP.NET Date: … Connection: close Content-Length:1233
I host my sites on Bluehost but their help team is claiming this error message has nothing to do with them.
The behavior seems to be sort of random but it sometimes shows up when I open a post that has already been saved – either a post which was published a while ago or a new post that I have saved – then when I go to save it again the error message will appear, but the changes will still take effect. Another example is the other night I was going through and deleting or editing a number of categories and the 403 error only popped up twice out of the 30 times I made changes to a category.
