Error 403
« on: August 16, 2017, 04:33:22 AM »
Hello,

Recently there was a downtime at my host and they were doing some updates, once it was over I started experiencing a 403 error (access forbidden), after that I tried setting all files permissions to 777 (then reverted) yet no use, however this is not a issue I experience on all pages, its on certain pages such as editing account settings, reputing, editing themes etc.

Is there any fix?

Ask your host to turn off mod security.
Don’t try to tell me that some power can corrupt a person. You haven’t had enough to know what it’s like.

Nothing turns to hate so bitter as what once was love.
