Lots of errors everywhere...

#1
Hi,

I got a major problem with Xenforo

I installed it today, imported a VBulletin board but I got problems that restrain me from opening it to visitors :

Most of the time when the cache rebuild is starting, It says there is an error and stop. Then I get a 403 Error saying that I don't have the permissions to access the file

When I go back, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, it's random...

Where does this come from ? The host doesn't seem to be able to find a solution...

Which cache is being rebuilt? What are you doing when the error occurs?

The 403 error is a server error. Which file is generating that error?

Which cache is being rebuilt?
No time to see, you can take a look at the error logs to see :/

What are you doing when the error occurs?
Any action that require the cache to be rebuilt, but it happens all the time when Rebuilding the search index

Which file is generating that error?
Not sure, admin.php I think

Can you check your server error logs?
Here it is :
Code:
[Thu Sep 08 01:14:10 2011] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xx] client denied by server configuration: /home/foldername/public_html/testforum/admin.php, referer: http://mysite.com/testforum/admin.php?tools/cache-rebuild
[Thu Sep 08 01:14:10 2011] [error] [client xx.xxx.xxx.xx] client denied by server configuration: /home/foldername/public_html/testforum/admin.php, referer: http://mysite.com/testforum/admin.php?tools/cache-rebuild
I censured some things

I asked 2 people that are working on the dedicated server, they are really good at it and they are managing a server hosting company, and they can't find where it comes from :/

After 2 hours of searching, it appears that the Apache module called "mod_evasive" was the cause of this
It was activated because we got DDOS issues on the website.
Deactivated it, and now it works

If this can help anyone ;)
really helpful for others that u post the fix ;)
