I have some reseller hosting and I am running Drupal 7 sites on several different accounts there.
I recently noticed a problem when updating one of them. It happens when I am editing content or changing admin settings.
- I go to an admin page - e.g. my.site/admin/people/permissions.
- I make a change and hit "Save".
The page submits and reloads. The address bar still says my.site/admin/people/permissions, but the page content is:
Page not found
The requested page "/admin/people/permissions" could not be found.
I tried changing .htaccess files, disabling modules, etc, but nothing worked. In the end I did the following:
- Created a new hosting account on my reseller hosting
- Installed a fresh copy of drupal-7.58
- Created a new database
When I repeated the actions above, I got the same results, except this time the error message was the following.
You don't have permission to access /drupal-7.58/admin/people/permissions on this server.
Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
I then checked another account on the same reseller hosting. It's running Drupal 7.54 and showing Page not found.
I didn't have the problem a few weeks ago, so I am wondering if my hosting company has changed something in Apache which is causing this problem (really clutching at straws here).
I am using:
- Apache 2.2.32
- PHP 5.6.30
- MySQL 10.0.34-MariaDB
Can anyone help?
