Permalink 403 Error When Using an Old Permalink URL
|Reported by:||eriknokc||Owned by:|
Yesterday I deleted a page and recreated it so that the Permalinks would use the same URL. Users received the following error...
You don't have permission to access /blog/text-message-alerts/ on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
I tried this a couple of times with different old Permalink URLs and received the same error. On any of these pages, if I turn off Permalinks, the GUID URL works fine.
Finally, I created a page so that the Permalinks URL was different from anything that had been created before and the Permalink worked fine. I changed the Title of the page to match the title of the old page after I had published the page and everything still works fine.
I have also reviewed the htaccess file and everything is as originally setup by Wordpress.
It appears that Wordpress is having an issue reusing old Permalinks and will not allow it to happen.
