403 Forbidden nginx

  • I have been viewing a games website, www.bethsoft.com, for over a year on opera mini on my droid. Today I went to browse the site from my bookmarks only to get the message 403 Forbidden nginx. I have no idea what this means. So I looked it up on wikipedia but I'm not IT savvy and am none the wiser. I don't have an account with the website so don't interact with the forums except to read topics and comments. I think the term for this is lurker. Given that I can't see that bethsoft have banned me. I have deleted the bookmark and also cleared cookies and history . I then used avg cleaner to clear the cache and the droids history. Then started a new search, found the website and clicked on it to connect but the page returned the same message. There is no content lock on my account and I can connect to the website through the clunky browser that came with the phone. All my other bookmarks function normally in opera mini. Can anyone shed any light on this and help me resolve this issue. Thanks for reading.

  • My site uses nginx. The nginx patch has to be re-applied after every upgrade when nginx and apache and vb are used.

    For us, it's a site thing, not a browser thing.

  • And that helps me how ?

  • Update. Uninstalled opera mini and cleaned phone cache and history. Went to my files and deleted the opera residuals. Downloaded opera classic and commenced new search for www.bethsoft.com. Clicked on it and recieved the 403 message before. Then downloaded dolphin browser. Commenced new search for www.bethsoft.com. Clicked on the results and was able to view the site. So by this I conclude the fault is opera asa's. Going to keep opera for now in the hope that the issue is resolved. Will experiment with dolphin to see how I get on with it. Not happy about it but there we are. ASA seems to be falling apart since the original founder left. Probably jump ship when/if he realeases a new browser. Be a sad day when that happens as I have enjoyed using opera.

  • With nf3.5 on a dumb phone bethsoft is resolved as /age like a black page without contains so you can pass some data about your experience with this site and other 100 domains with same IP on Sysadmins (they are the rulers over flat space) and tell them that Napoleon build an empire without Dolphin or Opera browsers and perhaps you will receive a bitcoin for such a statement.
