403 Forbidden Errors
« on: September 08, 2021, 01:33:16 pm »
I am getting 403 Forbidden errors when trying to add attachments that are well under the size requirements. I also tried to edit a post and got the same error when trying to save the edit. Anyone else having issues?

Thanks,
Virgil

I have had probably the same: no attachments, only external links.

We are upgrading security due to a hack into the fake coin reports. We will fix this. We need to add the firewall exceptions for these features.

OK, thanks for the response. I cannot imagine what a job it is to keep a site like this safe.

Now I am getting 403 Forbidden Error when trying to view my Forum Order history. Just tried twice to see it as mail seems to be really slow and I want to look at tracking as I have coins that should have arrived last week. Also, I am seeing 403 Forbidden on some of the sidebar items on the Forum pages.

Thanks,
Virgil

Image upload works for me, but with a strange time delay. I got an error message (502) and two or three minutes after the error message the picture was suddenly there.

I was trying to post some images in a post on the Fakes Board that I had downloaded from ebay. One filename was "Eug o.jpg" and 103Kb - I cannot upload this file and get 403 Forbidden. I cropped the image and renamed it to "EugObverse.jpg" - 83Kb and now it uploads.

I think that there may still be some issues in there but to do with something like duplicate filenames or something else?

So at the moment from my perspective it generally works but not 100%.

Regards,
Martin

I was getting 403 Forbidden all day yesterday and this morning just trying to load Forum.   Tried home page, galleries and shop. Nothing.  Turned off my VPN this morning and was able to load.  This will be problematic for those using a VPN.

Not 403 problem but probably similar reason.

I can't update my "NOT in RIC" page through FTP: "No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it".

This issue is a reminder of how vast and complex this site that Sorin has put together really is. We will probably be finding more issues for a long time.

Hi folks,

Yesterday, I encountered a problem similar to Lech. I tried to connect to Joe's server using Filezilla, but Joe's server kept repeatedly refusing my request to connect to it.

Today, I followed Sorin's advice to Lech, and it worked. I was able to connect to Joe's server.

And yes, Joe and other posters here are correct. This is all very complicated. Since I began working on my website in November 2015, my login procedure to connect to Joe's server has changed at least 3 or 4 different times. It is constantly changing.
