Error 403 forbidden


(Nick) #1

Hey guys! I’m a frequent user on the Infinite-flight forums but yesterday a continuous error occurs when trying to post a topic reply to it or to reply in a chat. (I wasn’t able to log out too!) I know a http error with 4XX is a device specific error and the forums work fine on my laptop (from which I’m currently writing). I already tried clearing my history and website data but I’m even unable to log in now! Can you guys help me?

Cheers - Nick

PS: I find it weird I can’t use my account from the infinite flight forums on this forum, (It took me only one min to create a new one with the same name and email address for this forum but still)

Hmm you relating to this topic:

Are you able to post here using your iPhone? Can you log off and on with your iPhone?

Nope I’m not able to log into this forums aswell on my iphone -> "unknown error"
I posted that one on the infinite flight forums meta too lol :wink: Didn’t know they could be seen here! :stuck_out_tongue: And yes Im referring to that same problem (since it was also me who made that topic there)

Which iPhone are you on? How are you trying to log in? Which iOS version?


(Nick) #5

iPhone 5S, Ios 8.1.3 (12B466). I’m trying to log in via safari. I type the webaddress (communiti.infinite-flight.com or meta.discourse.org) and the klick on the log in button on the top. I then type username and password but it’ll only give me an unknown error when trying to log in.
I tried fiddling with the cookies and safety settings a bit _ won’t help either

Yeah blocking cookies means you can not post, no way around it, Discourse requires cookies.
