HTTP 403 Error due to ModSecurity
« on: March 22, 2013, 03:18:55 PM »
Hello, I have the Standalone XML Sitemap Generator and it has been working properly but now we´ve installed ModSecurity in Apache Server and XML sitemap doesn´t run and comes back with the HTTP 403 error. If I disable ModSecutiry it works but it´s not the solution.

Could you please tell me what may I configure in ModSecurity to let XML Generator run OK?

Thanks very much for your time.
Regards,
Miguel A.Velasco

Hello,

make sure that you do not block local IPs with mod security so that generator process can still crawl your site.

Thanks for your reply.
At the end, it seems the problem was not mod_security but mod_cloudflare.

I´ve disabled mod_cloudfalre in Apache configuration and now xml-sitemap generator in working properly.
