I just tried to register on your board, and this is the full error message I saw:
Not Acceptable
An appropriate representation of the requested resource /ucp.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 406 Not Acceptable error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Try this first. Go into the "Security settings" page in your ACP, and turn off these two settings:
"Check IP against DNS Blackhole List", and "Check e-mail domain for valid MX record"

If that fixes your problem, then it it due to your web host blocking these services, and nothing to do with the 3.0.7 update.

Do you have access to your web server error logs?
The next most likely cause is a new mod_security rule your web host may have added. If so, there will be a log entry every time the 406 error is displayed.

Hi Again,

As am still waiting for the hosting company to give a full response into this, I was wondering if there may be anyother likely causes that I can look into whilst waiting?

TIA

No, you need that log,
If it reveals what I expect, then it is a problem which only they can fix, because they caused it.

Re: 406 error after registration

Post by Lumpy Burgertushie »

did you follow the instructions in this topic?

if so and it still happens, then follow the other instructions and contact your host and show them the error message.

It is probably a faulty setup of their mod_security installation.

Re: 406 error after registration

Post by valaraukar »

Made the changes, but didn't change at all.

I talked to the host provider but they said that they didn't make any changes at mod_security. Also, they told me that there isn't any db users, but the forum was working fine last week. so I created another DB user with the old password / name but nothing seems to work!

this is teh error message:

Code: Select all

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /posting.php could not be found on this server.
.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.14 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.14 OpenSSL/0.9.7a DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at b-revolution.org Port 80
The only thing that doesn't work is posting, registration, PM and the like are fine. Also I had a Backup of weeks ago, restored the db when the forum was working, but no changes at all o.o

Any help?

PD.- this is the forum: www.b-revolution.org
