Fan in action

After making a new install of OCportal (latest build) the site seems to run correct. But when a (new) user want to register-login, or admin wants to Edit page Comcode Then i get this error message:


You don't have permission to access /PI/adminzone/index.php on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

Apache/1.3.37 Server at *******.nl Port 80

What can this be be

Try renaming recommended.htaccess to .htaccess, to disable the Apache mod_security plugin. If this causes more errors, you need to try with just the following code in .htaccess:


<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

mod_security is a pain, it blocks legitimate page requests if it see's things like HTML in them (which any WYSIWYG editor puts in for instance). ocPortal has it's own security mechanisms, that are much more focused and correct.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Community saint

I remember I had to do that for the gallery.

I run and am hopping to make themes and other things for ocportal even though I no longer use it for I still love it and feel it could go far with the right help. It needs themes and needs people to advertise for it.
