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.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.
