XF 1.4 Error uploading resources


Active member
I tried uploading a resource and i get this error? Please help!

The following error occurred
Security error occurred. Please press back, refresh the page, and try again.
I had the same kind of problem.
mod_security was my issue. Ask your host to disable it for your forum. Let me know if this works out for you.

An issue like this can happen if your php.ini post_max_size is lower than the size of the file you're uploading.

If you know how to do it yourself, you can edit the php.ini file to change it.

Otherwise yes, contact your host and ask them to do it.
