Good morning, Christine.
It looks like the message is generated by the Apache (hosting) server. More info here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/28090737/not-acceptable-an-appropriate-representation-of-the-requested-resource-could-no
There is a solution posted on the linked thread. Might be worth trying.
I believe that you will find the .htaccess file in the site root folder.
I hope that this useful.
Sorry I need help not sent to another link. I did mention I am not very good with computers, I would like you to guild me through step by step, If you are unable to do this please pass me onto someone who can. I did try to open the \htaccess file but was unable ,maybe some help in this direction would be helpful. Chrstine
I’ve not long woken up. Lemme get a tea down ma neck, then I’ll start taking screenshots and create detailed instructions for you, Christine.
In basic terms, you can use the FTP manager (Step 5) to manage/access the files on the hosting server. A quick look tells me you will need to retrieve the .htaccess file, edit, then upload via the FTP manager.
I will elaborate further soon (unless this helps you to understand in the meantime)
I will be back.
Maybe contact the support of the web host, who can certainly help with that.
.htaccess in site root can be overruled further up the stack. So, if editing the site .htaccess doesn’t work, it will then be necessary to make contact with the host, Daniel.
And, good morning Daniel :o)
I can go to the htaccess file but I am unable to open or edit\download it if I can get into it I will be able to see what is within it and look for any key words that may stop that one blog being from posting comments on it .all the other blogs are working fine , there maybe a key word that has been blocked for comments being posted on that blog that has in the head lines Freemasons that I have created. This happens Only on this file this happens with, the part of main wordings headline Freemason, but vistors are unable to post comments regard this one Blog. all others are working fine.
Okay, here’s what to do:-
Select ‘Upload’ on Step 5 in WX5. Then open the FTP manager:
Select .htaccess, then hit the download button:
Save the file to your desktop:
Open the file in Notepad:
Add the suggested solution at the end of the file:
Then hit save:
Then upload the file to the server from your desktop with WX5 FTP Manager.
Lets us know if this fixes the problem please?
Based on what I have read in my half-awake state, your host is using some kind of filter. Hopefully, the changes made here will override the filter. If not, then personally I would contact my hosting provider and say “Oi, No!” lol.
