When I was trying to CREATE "Departments" within Blesta, I kept running into a "403 Forbidden Error" when I would try to save my work. I found a significant reason and solution to this issue... ** MOSTLY RESOLVED ** ============================== After taking a look at... https://www.blesta.com/forums/index.php?/topic/5799-creating-support-department-issue/#comment-40873 And then going to... http://www.wpbeginner.com/wp-tutorials/how-to-fix-the-403-forbidden-error-in-wordpress/ Where it says, NOTE : If you read further down in the article it gives different solutions to resolve this 403 issue. ========================= As for myself, I found that the issue appears to be originating from the plugins folder of the WordPress Installation that is under the same domain name. It seems that one of the "WordFence" security plugin in the WordPress installation is affecting the Host / Billing software. Even though the Host / Billing software is installed in a sub-folder. The "WordFence" security plugin can be obtained at https://wordpress.org/plugins/wordfence/ =========== As an experiment... 1) - I used SFTP to access the WordPress plugins folder at " /public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence " and changed it to " /public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence (OFF) ". 2) - After I did this, I went to the Host / Billing software at Support - - > Departments - - > Add Department icon - - > clicked on "Add Department" button once I was done. 3) - And now, I have access WITHOUT the 403 Forbidden Error. ========== 1) - So then I changed the plugin name back to its original state " /public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordfence ". 2)- I then logged into the WordPress Admin and went to the "Word Fence" - -> Option - -> Other Options - -> Whitelisted IP addresses that bypass all rules: settings. 3) - And then inserted my IP Address to the whitelist and saved. 4) - This appeared to work. 5) - Then I went back and DELETED my IP Address from the whitelist in WordFence 6) - Amazingly, I STILL have access to the Host / Billing software at Support - - > Departments - - > Add Department icon and was able to add or edit the department. ============ IN SUMMARY... My best guess is that the "WordFence Security plugin" in WordPress is writing something to the WordPress .htaccess file which was affecting the Host / Billing software that is installed in my sub-directory. ========== So it appears that this issue "IS RESOLVED" for the most part BUT just curious to know if there is a way to ... 1) - get the web server's Mod_Security rule to ignore what the WordPress "WordFence" plugin is doing concerning my access to the "Departments" page of the Host / Billing installation ? 2) - get WordPress .htaccess in the root domain for Wordpress to ignore my access to the "Departments" page of the Host / Billing installation ? ========== Hope this help everyone Look forward to your reply. Thanks in advance.
I'm looking at Blesta Integrations because I'd like the Blesta experience my customers have to match my website. Is it possible to have something where a buy link in WordPress results in a package being added to the Blesta cart? What are the potential issues & pitfalls involved? I've seen a lot of WP/WHMCS combos and have been tempted to switch as it seem easy. But I suspect the issues would be the same whether it's WHMCS or Blesta so the time/effort to change is likely not worth it.
