Drupal 7 install on WAMP – now page is forbidden

Playing around with Drupal I suddenly found I was unable to view pages with the “localhost” URL.

Solution was a “.htaccess” file got written to the www folder. I deleted this file and everything was normal again

The issue would come back each time I went into the configuration area. I am trying to figure out how to stop this.

I hope this helps someone else out there…


Vipre Warning – [#183197] [POSSIBLE FP FILE]Exploit.SWF.Agent.bb (v)

Tech Chris called Vipre Business technical support today. They confirmed this was a false positive.  The resolution for this is to update the virus definitions.

To update virus definitions:

  1. Log into server
  2. Open Vipre Business Premium
  3. Click on protected computers tab
  4. On the left, you will see site navigator
  5. Under windows policies, select the policy that has the protected computers (will be either “desktops” or “default for workstations” for workstations, and either “laptops” or “default for laptops” for laptops)
  6. Right click policy name > agent updates > check for threats definitions updates
  7. This will update the agents to the latest threat definitions

Thanks our buddy Chris.

Hope this helps someone else out there.
