client denied by server configuration uri /wp-content/plugins/akismet

Hello DO,

I’ve got this one error that keeps popping up when I enter my comments admin area in wordpress: /wp-admin/edit-comments.php

This is the error uri that pops up->
AH01630: client denied by server configuration: uri /wp-content/plugins/akismet/inc/A.akismet.css,

Not sure why this error is coming up though cus in the backend everything seems to be working fine. In my virtual host file its set to:
<Directory /var/www/html/>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
AllowOverride All
Require all granted

Nothing else is giving me an error.

Any ideas? Thanks!

This could be caused by other plugins. Are you running any security related plugins on your WordPress instance?

Yea running - wordfence…
