Tagged: Error 403
February 11, 2015 at 4:03 pm #12197
I am using PDF Stamper Plugin with WordPress 4.1.
In the plugin settings page (General settings tab), clicking
– the Update Options button at the bottom of the page
– the Reset to Default button at the bottom of the page
– the Reset log button
they all produce a 403 Forbidden error (Access to this resource on the server is denied!)
So, I cannot do anything with the plugin.
In the .htaccess there are just some redirects 301 besides standard WordPress stuff.
What might be the cause?

What other plugins are you using? Are you using any special security plugins?February 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm #68558
The page giving the error is:
I have the following plugins (none is about security)
Contact Form 7
Envato WordPress Toolkit
Force Regenerate Thumbnails
Kraken Image Optimizer
Really Simple CAPTCHA
Recent Tweets Widget
WPBakery Visual Composer

Please go through this checklist to determine if any of the other plugins are contributing to the problem:February 11, 2015 at 6:51 pm #68560
I switched back to default theme and the error remains.
I deactivated all plugins but the tolerated common ones and the error remains.
I even tried to uninstall and reinstall the plugin, but nothing.
What to do now?February 11, 2015 at 11:55 pm #68561adminKeymaster
Very weird, is your server using litespeed by any chance?
Do you have a htacess file in your “wp-admin” folder also?February 12, 2015 at 7:57 am #68562
I don’t have litespeed.
No .htaccess file in the wp-admin folder.
Also manual stamping gives 403 forbidden error.
I deactivated all plugins and then performed a clean reinstall of the plugin.
Now I am lost.February 12, 2015 at 12:04 pm #68563
Solved, but I fear this is a security leak for my whole site.
I had to add to my .htaccess in the WordPress folder the following lines:

Only if your hosting provider is still running Apache 1.x; in which case, you should be even more worried.
So ask your provider if they are using old version of Apache.August 25, 2015 at 7:39 am #68565
Hello, After months of correct behavior, the plugin started giving Error 403 Forbidden Access to this resource on the server is denied!
ERROR on this pages:
– Manual stamping NOT working:

This is NOT an issue in our plugin. So first focus on the plugins you added to your site. Have you done the conflict test with the plugins? Has your hosting provider changed settings in your server?August 31, 2015 at 9:13 am #68567
Hello, Disabling ModSecurity on the server, it works.August 31, 2015 at 2:25 pm #68568
Disabling ModSecurity on the server, it works.
You need to ask your hosting provider to help you “find” the correct ModSecurity rule that will permit the plugin to operate properly.
