I've just moved an EE v2.7.2 site to a new server, following the EE-docs thoroughly. Verified all paths and file/folder permissions.

Everything works well until i try to edit or publish an entry, getting the error message below.

To get a WYSIWYG editor i'm using Expresso field types for my 'summary' and 'body' fields, and as soon I write or edit in one of these fields it is not possible to submit without the error. If I use only the other non-Expresso fields there is no error message.

Everything was working perfectly on the previous server.

Any suggestions?

Error message - access denied

  • Could you provide a translation of the error message into English?

This may be a mod_security issue. Please check if your host is running it.

You can turn off mod_security by adding below code to .htaccess :

<IfModule mod_security.c>
  SecFilterEngine Off
  SecFilterScanPOST Off
