 Hi there. I'm not sure what's happened, but my images are failing to load. I checked them on the server, and they are still there and in their correct folders. When I view the images in the events, they show as a broken link. It I click on one on the blank images from the front end, I am getting the error "image failed to load"

I have cleared cache and synced the database. Any other suggestions?

Custom Fields

Please send a link to the site which should show those images.

I guess that would help :0

Upon further investigation through Firefox inspector, I see I am getting 403 forbidden errors. My image folders are 755, and the images are 644. I must have a permission problem somewhere else?

Seems like your server does not allow the execution of this file:

Please contact your hosting provider for hints how to fix this. In the meantime you can switch on the "fallback render mode" in the components options. But please don't keep this option since it will increase the server load.

Hi, I checked with my host and they say there is nothing on their end that would cause this error. I am thinking though it may be an issue with the .htaccess file and new advanced security features.

For example:
##### Advanced server protection rules exceptions -- BEGIN
RewriteRule ^administrator\/components\/com_akeeba\/restore\.php$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^administrator\/components\/com_admintools\/restore\.php$ - [L]
RewriteRule ^administrator\/components\/com_joomlaupdate\/restore\.php$ - [L]

So I tried adding
RewriteRule ^components\/com_eventgallery\/helpers\/images\.php$ - [L]

but that didn't work. So not sure what the syntax would be

Can I send you my htaccess file to see if there is something in there I should modify?

if you played around with the .htaccess file please try to remove your custom code and try again. The rule you want to add will not help.

Which permissions are set for the script components/com_eventgallery/helpers/image.php?

Permissions are 644. I didn't customize the htaccess. Looks like it was modified by Akkeba admin tools with added security options. Should I be going to them? I'm not sure if that is what is causing the issue and maybe I am barking up the wrong tree. When I rename the .htaccess file, I get php errors when loading site.

Okay. Let's start over again.

This URL works:

This one throws a 403:

Please check your server configuration where this HTTP403 is coming from. Right now I don't really have a clue.
