Drupal Access Denied Message in the Logs

Some times you might get a frustrating Access Denied message in the Drupal Logs for an anonymous user.

There are many solutions to this – check the Drupals Blog http://drupal.org/node/134505

One solution is

1. Log into drupal as an administrator

2. Go to Administer -> User Management -> Permissions

3. Find the “node module”

4. Below that must be a “access content” permission

5. Check the boxes for “anonymous” and “authenticated” user

6. Clear “watchdog” table in the Drupal DB

7. Test by logging out and logging back in several times with different accounts and hitting the page as an anonymous user

8. Check recent log entries for any erors

    Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

      start with a free option first ( but it has limitations like you cannot customize certain things ) - but i think you will get all that is required to jump start. Once you see that your blog is getting many number of hits, you can upgrade - many services now also offer to import your blogs to their own hosting sites.
