Strange error cc:

Post by pacop2 » Sat May 01, 2010 7:40 pm

I have two phpbb forums 3.0.7-PL1

In both forums, when I write "cc:" (without the quotes), I get this error:

--------------------
Not Acceptable
An appropriate representation of the requested resource /foros/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.
--------------------

This is when I preview the page, or when I try to post the text :!: :!:

ps. I have deleted .htaccess to test, this is no related with this.
ps2. All work ok with the forums but this strange error

That kind of message is often related to your hosts having an incorrect setting on their mod_security. Ask them to check if your posting.php file is tripping the mod_security to disallow it.

Thank you, for sure this is the problem.

I have mod_security, with default options, and there are this related lines:

#phpbb XSS
SecFilterSelective REQUEST_URI "/posting\.php\?mode=reply\&t=.*userid.*phpbb2mysql_t=(<[[:space:]]*script|(http|https|ftp)\:/)"
SecFilterSelective REQUEST_URI "/posting\.php\\?.*(<[[:space:]]*script|(http|https|ftp)\:/)"

I don't understand what they do, but for sure this is the problem. Thanks.
