Re: client denied by server configuration on hosting error report

@lnakaconnection 

 

So a quick google search shows that this error "AH01630: client denied by server configuration:" is something that is generated by Apache (the web server)

 

I attempted to go to http://lankadirectory.info/ads.txt and I got a 403 Forbidden Message

That would tell me either the permission on this folder or file are not set correctly, or perhaps you have a .htaccess only allowing access from certain IP addresses.

 

As such you are seeing the error is your logs

I see this is on the same server as your last post - it looks like a specific IP address is being blocked - perhaps you have an htaccess file that is blocking it

Re: client denied by server configuration on hosting error report

I search about this error in the Internet. I found that the issue is Apache Setting on the godaddy server. When I inform this to Godaddy with the proof also they don't like to correct this issue on their side. This error not effect only for me I found that Godaddy community has another thread to asking about this error and solution has not given. I have fed up with this Godaddy poor service now.

 

I am running same script on webhostinghub server and there are no any error like this. They maintain correct Apache setting on their server.

 

This error can remove from Godaddy server very easily according to this article

The other posting you referenced is a 500 error which is a configuration error. If you run any WordPress websites you will see this from time to time when a plugin or theme doesn't update correctly. 

 

I have a couple of questions

1) Do you have any .htaccess files either in the public_html folder or in the subfolder for this site

2) To confirm is this a VPS or a cPanel server

3) When you are in the file manager, what is the permissions (last column) on the ads.txt file?
