Yup, r395 that should be 2.4 compatible. What's the error you're getting?

Well, the good news is that I don't get the same error anymore. I deleted all the modules and reloaded them being careful to flush both the build and cache - so no installation issues - now however there are a whole lot of other strange errors popping up when trying to upload a file and the Assets (files/images) section no longer works.

That'll have to wait for another day.

Thanks for your quick responses.

SO there was some sort of path error with the naming on the folder - fixed and now pages are viewing correctly, testimonial example works fine, but I am still unable to upload files.

I have disabled mod_security if it is running (dont think it is)

<IfModule mod_security.c>
SecFilterEngine Off

I followed the suggestions for debugging at but still cannot figure out the error.

Here is a paste of the SWF DEBUG.

Any suggestions?

HTTP 406 error? Never heard of it.

Looks like your sever might not allow requests from non-web browsers?

This is for anyone else out there that may get a 406 error. This has been due to mod_security. Now ordinarily a simple .htaccess override of

<IfModule security_module>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off


<IfModule security2_module>
SecFilterEngine Off
SecFilterScanPOST Off

should do the job. However after continued HTTP 500 errors I researched more only to find out that ModSecurity 2.x cannot be controlled using .htaccess filles, therefore making the above fixes obsolete.

The only fix here is to change the httpd.conf to remove the offending rule.

Awesome. Thanks for posting this. The more information we have about this, the better off we all are!

Mod_security is a tough beast. It's actually not necessary to remove it entirely, although, a lot of people find it's more headaches than its worth, but there are so many ways to configure mod_security, it is possible to get it playing nicely with Flash. All of our sites have mod_security enabled and I've never had an issue. I think our sysadmin just cranks the sensitivity way down. But that's all way beyond me. :)
