    As advised by @Skizzerz, a new thread is being opened concering the issue I am facing in modifying content in my website http://kpatel.x10host.com

    The problem is that whenever I try to update an existing page inside Wordpress while logged in as admin, I get the following message with "403 Forbidden" in the title bar of Firefox:

    You don't have permission to access /wordpress/wp-admin/post.php on this server.
    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."

    There are no issues on creating a new page, however.

    As noted in the previous thread (https://x10hosting.com/community/threads/403-forbidden.196570/), I have verified the permissions of all the files and directories, as well as checked the contents of all the .htaccess files.

    @Skizzerz looked into the issue disabled a mod_security rule which was blocking the requests:
    "@letapk: There was a mod_security rule blocking your requests, I disabled that particular rule for your account so you should be able to edit your posts now. Let me know if that works or not."

    However, the issue still persists. Since the .htaccess file has directives that prevent the server from scanning posts, and stop the mod_security rule from triggerring, it seems that there is yet another rule (or maybe more than one) that is preventing updates.

    Apologies for the long post, but it seemed necessary to put all the information in.

    With regards,
