Heyo everyone,

I'm getting a 501 Method Not Implemented error when saving a specific entry. Screenshot: http://d.pr/i/VeFj

After some googling it looks like a mod_security issue. Has anyone else encountered this issue?

The entry is called "Deus Caritas Est" so it is possible that mod_security is having a conflict with the entry title. I've issued a support request with Nexcess, but wanted to know if anyone else had see that issue.

I have have this happen and others have as well... Usually comes up as a 403 Forbidden error.

Alex Roper posted this code for disabling in the .htaccess file.

<IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off

We had to contact Nexcess support to allow a mod_security exception for our site. Hope this helps anybody else with a similar problem.
