This comes up time and time again so a sticky thread is in order.

If you encounter this error message and you are using a computer (rather than a mobile device), access the browser console (F12 if using Windows / Chrome).

Select the Console tab and there should be an error message displayed, something like this:


Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Forbidden)

PHP: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD        core-compiled.js?_v=4282e784:42
HTML 2.0//EN">
<title>403 Forbidden</title>
<p>You don't have permission to access /forum/posts/123/edit
on this server.<br />

If it's a 403 Forbidden error then it will likely be due to a server side security mechanism such as ModSecurity, mod_evasive, or similar.
It could even be something like the Wordfence add-on for WordPress.
Contact your host and ask them to whitelist whichever rules are being triggered, or to disable the mechanism.

If it's an HTTP 500 error, this is a generic web server error and your host will need to inspect the server error log (not the XF ACP error log) to determine what is causing it.
