@Dead-i @Corey

For the last 3 weeks now I've been having this issue and none of you can solve this problem for me? MyBB forum is a free forum software I'm confused why you guys have such mod_security on? :/ I get this error everywhere in admin cp example Thread Prefix i can't create one I'll get a crap error showing on my screen and then i try to edit my theme global.css and add a body background i can't even do that it gives me this error..

Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /hqsecurity/index.php on this server.

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

Can you guys do something about this please? Like i said 3 weeks I've been having this issue everytime i create a Topic nobody replies or checks.

Thank You!

May I ask, what is hqsecurity? Clearly, it's triggering a rule here and does contain the word 'security', which to me would imply that it's a vulnerability scanner of some kind.

Oh. Right. Have you tried reverting the name to see if it's the directory name which could be triggering a rule?

Ah. Then it's probably the word 'security'. Try picking a different directory name.
