In my last post, I kept getting this error when I clicked Publish in wordpress:
Error 406, Not Acceptable. An appropriate representation of the requested resource /wp-admin/post.php could not be found on this server.
It turned out my host was running mod_security and there are certain phrases it won’t let you publish. It’s censorship, but I understand why they do it. I was talking about the most dangerous command you can run in unix:
sudo rm -rf
That’s what triggered it. I had to obfuscate the text in that entry and this one just to be able to post it. (View the source of this page to see what I mean).
If you’ve been able to post normally and suddenly you can’t and are getting this error, check for weird linux commands or files in your post that could be triggering this.
