  • 403 when trying to save Styles.

    hi

    i recently wanted to make a very minor (one letter) change in the footer which is made via AdminCP > Maintenance > Update Counters > Rebuild Styles, and after hitting save, i get a 403 (forbidden) error. that tells me, a feature in vb is not allowed to run on my current hosting. fyi, the last time i did any changes via the styles setting was years ago, and the only underlying overall change since then is that i am now with a different host. i assume the new host might not allow some php(?) features. right? if so, how do i know which one/s to be able to talk to them about it. if it's not that, what could it be? it worked before. ps: i am running pure vanilla vb - not a single 3rd party add-on.

    thanks,

    403 is a no permission error from the server. Probably being blocked by mod_security, or similar server security software.

    You'll need to speak to your host about this.
