Description (last modified by Wiktor Walc)

This is not STRICTLY a bug but a concern for compatibility with a great deal of FCKEditor users with some of the main stream hosting companies like HostGator. I think it needs addressing so that more people can use FCK without problems...

su_hosen or mod_security may not allow get variable to have absolute paths.


This may throw a 403 permission denied error.

The following example won't:

So to fix this the value of "FCKConfig.BasePath" should be root relative instead of absolute.

Current value for our example; FCKConfig.BasePath =

should be; FCKConfig.BasePath = /editor

FCKeditor was retired and is no longer supported. All active development was moved to its successor, CKEditor 3.x, that is a fully mature and far superior product. We recommend you upgrade as soon as possible.
