Version of phpBB3: 3.0
Was this a fresh install or a(n) update/upgrade/conversion (please be specific)? No. It happened out of the blue and I have not touched the /forum directory in weeks.
Was this an install through your host? It was manual by myself months ago.
MODs you have installed: Automatic Redirect.
When the problem started: Today while trying to reply to a post.
Template(s) used: VistaX, Prosilver2
Language(s) used: British English
Version of PHP used: 4.4.7
Database and version used: 4.1.22-standard-log
Suddenly today, my forum wouldn't allow anyone to post due to "not having sufficient privileges to posting.php". When pushing the submit button, my users and I get the following error:
Code: Select all
You don't have permission to access /forum/posting.php on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/1.3.39 Server at www.yatazen.com Port 80
I have checked the file attributes of said file and it is correct, being at 644. I tried using various other numbers, including 755, but it did not help. I also attempted removing/editing the .htaccess file, but it made no difference.
I even replaced posting.php and the .htaccess file from a fresh download of phpBB3.0 and it helped none.
When searching on Google, I came across many people having the same problem, but none of their solutions worked.
I also attempted to use the restore system to restore a backup of when it worked, but it also did not help.
Cans someone please be of assistance? I'm at my whits end.
