403 Access Forbidden Error | WordPress.org


I get the generic error “an error occurred, please try again” after updating from v2.x to v3.0.4.

All content is gated. No one can access the website. I see your answer to others for this:

So that error is normally something blocking access to the API, could be a security plugin or something similar. Try clearing any caches.

I tried clearing all server/website/browser cache but it does not seem to solve the issue.

I see in console there is an error in file:


with the status:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 403 (Access Forbidden)

Any chance you can help me troubleshoot? I do use WP Cerber Security plugin, but if that’s blocking it I don’t know where to whitelist Age Gate. =/
