So, Owncloud has been working flawlessly, and I have been loving it. I have been using hostripples to host owncloud, as they say that owncloud is allowed.
Onto my issue, I was using owncloud fine for about two weeks straight, and then one day when i turned my computer on, it asked for my password for my owncloud account, I thought this was odd, and just quit out of the program and reopened it. Unfortunately, the prompt for password was still there.
After making sure I was on a HTTPS connection, I entered my password. When I did this, it instantly popped back up asking for my password again. At this point I was extremely confused, and double checked my password was typed correctly, which it was.
The next thing I tried, was deleting my local account from the computer I was having issues with, then when I tried re-adding the computer, I was faced with an "access to server is forbidden by server. To verify you have proper access click here to access the service with your browser."
Literally the day before, I was using owncloud fine, and I changed no settings in between that time. I hadn't changed anything in a week or more actually.
So assuming my webhost (hostripples) had changed a security setting I wrote them. They informed me that the issue is something within owncloud, however I feel they changed something to stop me from using owncloud for cloud storage for whatever reason.
I have verified this on multiple computers, running windows 8.1, windows 10, and Mac OS.
I have tried disabling mod_security, and still am faced with this issue. I don't know even how I could troubleshoot this considering the fact that I didn't change anything.
To narrow down any issues, I completely wiped my owncloud install and started from scratch just now, much to my surprise, it still is giving me the same error.
I am so frustrated at this point and any suggestions would be great. I made a test account for anyone that would like to try a desktop client of their choice, but I am sure you will find the same results.
Thank you in advance for any help!!
Steps to reproduce
1. Log into desktop client (windows or Mac)
2. Enter username + password
3. Red message saying access forbidden by server, cannot use desktop client at all.
Sync client works fine and can be logged into
