Suddenly getting error when posting videos

    I’ve been using the BBvideo plugin for a couple years now, haven’t changed anything in my site recently, though i did do some work in the site route (not the bbpress folder.)

    this morning a user told me that when they try’d to post a vid, they got the following error.

    Forbidden

    You don’t have permission to access /discuss/bb-post.php on this server.

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

    even if i’m logged in as admin, i still get the forbidden.

    2 things. all the vids previously uploaded, still show up (IE, the link, gets converted to an embed vid.) so the plugin seems to be working… and if i disable it, but still paste in a link to say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IYsTV2C9zaM, even though the plugin is disabled, it still spits back a forbidden error. Yet, if i just write in random text, without a link reference… it posts fine.

    Completely baffled.

    Thoughts?

    I have just posted about this. Exactly the same thing. Sudden error, no change, users getting 404s when posting links. I also use that plugin but I hear this is happening when posting all links. I can’t really check it right now as I’m away from home.

    Please let me know if you have any ideas, this is really really bad news.

    Are you guys with the same hosting company? Maybe they locked down the security or something. I heard about Media Temple doing this last week (mod_security or something.)

    I’m with Hostgator..? I’ll email them. Thanks for the tip.

    yep they said it’s mod_sec. I’ll report back when I’ve retested it.

    I’m also with HostGator – i guess that explains it. Now to see what can be done about it.
