403 forbidden and other errors

I am getting 403 forbidden error. I cannot change the setting. I can’t create a topic and there are more problems. I added WAF last. once i got 429 rate limit error. how can i fix the problem?

browser console

browser network

Console error when an operation fails.

I’m afraid I don’t have any experience with WAF, but a search has turned up a couple of topics which may/may not be useful?

How to build a Discourse Installation with an Open Source WAF

Is WAF something you definitely need?

How did you install discourse? If this a standard install?

Fixing the WAF configuration fixed the issue.
