I was looking into my apache server log of my website (service provider is a2hosting) and see this error message constantly when I log into modx manager.
It basically says the client is trying to access /core/docs/changelog.txt which is denied.
[Sat Oct 21 00:26:59.739126 2023] [authz_core:error] [pid 173440:tid 23380540942080] [client 18.104.22.168:53312] AH01630: client denied by server configuration: /home/xxxxx/public_html/xxxxx/core/docs/changelog.txt
Of course it will be denied as I left /core/.htaccess untouched.
# deny access to _all_ files in the core, including changelog.txt and error.log # original borrowed from owncloud # line below if for Apache 2.4 <ifModule mod_authz_core.c> Require all denied </ifModule> # line below if for Apache 2.2 <ifModule !mod_authz_core.c> deny from all Satisfy All </ifModule> # section for Apache 2.2 and 2.4 IndexIgnore *
I can get to the manager page but sometimes I see “the site is not working” page before I refresh it.
I am just curious as to what is causing this error message. It appears as if one of my manager components is trying to access the changelog.txt, but why?
modx version 3.04
PHP version 7.4 (phpthumb class file patched per recent forum entry to resolve issue of thumbnails not rendering in manager page)
