Trouble accessing the site

Post by Redfaery » Tue Oct 21, 2014 4:40 pm

I'm getting a "403 forbidden" error when I try to access this site via my computer. Just out of curiosity, I visited Dhamma wheel. I got the same error. I'm not having problems with any other sites. Can someone let me know what's up?

I'm getting similar messages too, probably a problem with the server (both sites use the same server). It may be undergoing maintenance.

I was getting similar errors and posted a thread on Dhamma Wheel where David responded.

I discovered the problem in your case. You have an IP very similar to a spam bot that was banned. So I unbanned that IP. It should work better for you. If anyone else has trouble accessing the site where it says "forbidden" then it may be the same issue. Let me know via email and you can let me know your IP or I could look it up for you since Admins have access to everyone's IP.

If you don't know your IP address, just click this to see:
