XF 1.4 Cannot use BBCode Editor, No Server Errors

When I click "Use BB Code Editor", I get the following message:

The following error occurred:


You don't have permission to access /index.php on this server.
I am getting no server errors. Does anyone know how I can troubleshoot this otherwise?

Contact your host and ask them to whitelist the offending rule.
