403 Forbidden when starting crawl
« on: June 03, 2015, 12:39:48 AM »
Just updated and haven't run the utility for several months anyway. After update tried to crawl and got this:

There was an error while retrieving the URL specified: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
HTTP Code:
HTTP/1.1 403 Forbidden
HTTP headers:
date: Tue, 02 Jun 2015 23:19:05 GMT
server: Apache/2.2.27 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.27 OpenSSL/1.0.1e-fips mod_bwlimited/1.4 mod_fcgid/2.3.9
content-length: 321
connection: close
content-type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1
x_csize: 321

HTTP output:

I've gone through all the folder permissions and can't find a problem. Also checked .htaccess. The prior version used to run fine but like I said haven't run it in the site (we normally use Sitemaps-PRO) since January. So may be some changes on the site I am unaware that affect it now.

Any ideas where to look to resolve this? I would like to run a local version on the server as well as our PRO version.

Thank you!

looks like there is a setting on your website that blocks requests from local IP address (might be in Joomla configuration).
