    You don't have permission to access /login.php on this server

    Hello!

    In last 3 days I've been trying to login to this forums with my Ubuntu One SSO account but after I enter my credentials and confirm the logging in to https://ubuntuforums.org with "Yes, log me in", I get the following error from the server:

    Forbidden

    You don't have permission to access /login.php on this server.
    Apache/2.4.7 (Ubuntu) Server at ubuntuforums.org Port 443

    I've tried the login in various web browsers and also deleted cookies before the login but to no avail.

    Is this a known issue/bug in the forum software?

    My Ubuntu One account activity shows that I last logged in to forums on 20 February 2016. Also, on that account I successfully changed my password today. So, I'd say that everything's fine with my Ubuntu One account.

    (I'm writing this with a new Ubuntu One account I created today with another e-mail address.)

    What are further steps I can do to solve this problem?

    This could be linked to recent forum problems with posting and replying to threads that is still causing many headaches for users, but logging in to a specific user is not normally one of those difficulties.

    Start a new thread in the Resolution Centre with all details of the old, but now non-working login account, and an admin may be able to assist you or at least give you some clues as to what has gone wrong

    For what it's worth, you're not the only one who's hit that https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread....1#post13520713

    I got around that by logging out of Ubuntu One, log back in to Ubuntu One from https://login.ubuntu.com/, and then just tried again to log in to Ubuntu Forums. Haven't seen the error since.

    I tried that but it didn't help.

    I have had same issue on two or three posts, usually where I type a few lines and then add a lot of my standard links to more info.
    But it seems random.
    The Admins are talking to Canonical and they are adjusting some parameters.

    I have now moved the thread to the RC as it is a user account issue.

    rpr2, you have two Ubuntu One accounts, the older one has a gmail account and the newer one a yahoo account. Please clear all browser data and try again to log in https://login.ubuntu.com/ with the oldest U1 account. Does it work ? If so, does login into the forums work ?
    You can follow up by PM or on the FC mailing list ubuntu-forums-council -at- lists.ubuntu.com.
