I recently installed Upload picture mod on my forum. I made a backup of the database in the administrative panel.But since the Uplaod Picture did not work properly, I tried to restore the database but got error messages with the net result that I could not find the posts. I started rebuiding my forum afresh by posting new posts. While I was saving a post, I got the message

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /forums/phpBB2/posting.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I tried again but am getting the same message

Please help me. What should i do.

One word: permissions. Edit the posting.php file to 777. That should fix your problem.

i was thinking that .. but it's never needed to be edited to 777 before.
I wasnt sure wheather it would be a security issue or not?
SpellcasterDX
I don't think setting the posting.php file to 777 is a security risk at all. It's just the file you make a post with.

I set the permission to 777 but it did not work. Interestingly I am able to make and save other posts.
The problem is arising with only one post. I was copying a ``free'' article from Hotlib.com and pasting it. However, I have been able to copy and paste other articles.
