403 Forbidden Error

#1 Post by admin » Thu Nov 17, 2016 9:13 pm

Hello,
Some users are experiencing a 403 Forbidden error. I hope that this is a temporary error. If you are encountering this, then I want to confirm to you that your user accounts was NOT cancelled. Currently I do not know the reason for this error, and some users do not experience it. I have not done any changes to the forum and the error started to appear... Things are unfortunately not always very logical. I suppose that this has to do something with my service provider, who hosts this forum, and because some users are able to log in, it might be dependent on the location of the user.

In any case, I am going to do a software update for the forum, in the hope that this resolves the issue.

The error does not seem to be my fault (and also not yours), I have contacted my web hosting company.

Hi Oliver and all,

I am using Chrome and was able to fix it for me(finally) with the instructions contained here:

I was able to delete the cookie for this web site and so far it is working..
