403 error when saving pages.

403 error when saving pages.June 20, 2007 @ 5:18pm
When saving a page I get

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /index/admin/pages-edit-save on this server.

Permissions against the files seem ok, I have noticed that some files are owned by www and some by my userid.
problem happens using different web browsers.

Roger,

There shouldn't be any file writing involved when saving a page in FlexCMS, as it's all stored in the database.

The path you posted there is "/index/admin/pages-edit-save". Is that exactly as it appears? If so, have you changed any settings to use "index" instead of "index.php"?

Yes, I am using index, but also have a copy called index.php

I have

Code

<Files index>
ForceType application/x-httpd-php
</Files>

in .htaccess

Any suggestions?

Roger,

Is this a new installation/host/server, or was this an existing setup that just started having problems?

Where does this error happen? Just saving page changes or other places too?

I would first try going back to index.php in your Script Name setting just to try and eliminate possible causes.

I think I know what the problem is.
The page contains php code and somehow some of the tag symbol <'s have been changed to & l t ; (without the spaces).

This seems to cause problems when the page is posted back.

I recall having this problem before.

See http://www.flexcms.com/index.php/forum/thread/78.html

Thanks

Roger

Roger,

The contents of the page shouldn't have any effect on what happens after it's saved. And even more than that I can't imagine how anything like that would create a server side error like you described.

You said in the beginning that the owners of some of the files were different. What is the ownership and permission level of the inc-core-pages-edit-save.php file relative to index.php?

Hi,

I do not think it is file permissions as I can create, edit and save new and existing pages without problem.

Hi Roger,

Some of the questions we've asked haven't been fully answered and at this point it's best if you send us your server information, username/password for both your site and FTP to our support email so we can take a closer look for you.

Please do not list any of your information here, send an email to and we'll take this offline and help you figure it out.

Thanks,

Kel

Thanks for sorting this.

Problem was a security feature in PHP - it was trapping an fopen command in the page text.
(Page was displaying RSS feeds)

fopen(... fails fopen (... works
