Vanilla 2.6 is here! It includes security fixes and requires PHP 7.0. We have therefore ALSO released Vanilla 2.5.2 with security patches if you are still on PHP 5.6 to give you additional time to upgrade.
Please upgrade to 2.3 here. The 2.2 and earlier branches are no longer being updated.

Forbidden error when attempting to grant profile permissions.

Whenever I attempt to grant to a role the ability to view and edit profiles under permissions, I get a 403 (Forbidden) error upon hitting save.

"You don't have permission to access /forums/role/edit/33 on this server.

Additionally, a 403 Forbidden error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

This is the text I receive, but it's not just limited to 33, I get this error on any role I attempt to edit.
And yes, this only happens when I attempt to save permissions for a role and those permissions include the ability to view and edit profiles.

Any ideas?


  • @MorganIsCute, can you disable your plugins and see if the problem persists?

    If the problem still persists, can you set the column "Admin" to 1 instead of 0 in "gdn_user" in your database? That means that permission checks don't apply to you anymore. Because it sounds like you're missing some permissions.

    If you're going to edit the database, make a backup!
