Hello bdonison, and thanks for your question.

I see that your account last encountered a 406 error about 7 hours ago from looking at the Apache error log on the server.

I also see that it does look like you do have <strong>mod_security</strong> currently disabled. Have you encountered this error again since following our guide on <a href="" target="_blank">disabling mod_security via the cPanel Modsec Manager</a>?

It looks like the errors were coming from the <strong>/wp-admin/plugin-editor.php</strong> file.

Also it doesn't appear that the domain you have setup with us is currently pointing at our server, and is still set to your previous host. I would recommend <a href="" target="_blank">modifying your hosts file</a> while testing on our server before <a href="" target="_blank">updating your domain's name servers</a> to point to us.

You could possibly be having an issue when using the temporary URL due to it running under a different user than your account, that does still have <strong>mod_security</strong> enabled.

Please let us know if you continue to experience these errors intermittently after accessing your domain directly instead of the temporary URL.
