Access forbidden reset password link. OJS 2.4.8-2


After update my system from version 2.3.7 to 2.4.8-2, I’m getting a “403 error: access forbidden” when I click on the link received to reset password.

I already checked the expiration time and folder permissions.

Am I missing something?


Hi @Munir_Salim,

The request is probably being erroneously intercepted by mod_security or another sever-side security tool. OJS doesn’t respond with a 403 to that request. Check your web server’s logs for details.
