Admin pages not loading

Post by kristara » Sun Jan 13, 2008 9:23 pm

I have an error for my configuration page and cannot access it:

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /forum/admin/admin_board.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

My permissions seem to be fine. Also, I tried to access to enter manually, but I don't know where these settings are kept.

Any ideas to the best fix, or to change manually so I can at least change settings for now please?

Check the permissions on the admin files. The files should be CHMODed to 644.

---I haven't done anything to this page. It worked just a minute ago. Could this be a server problem going on?

That's a mod_security error. You'll need to contact your web host. Their mod_security rules are too strict.

Edit: Sigh, a typo.
