When clicking on links produced by Template:coord on the English Wikipedia (link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Coord), the template is supposed to access the geohack tool, as shown in the URL above. For unknown reasons, this is producing a 403 Forbidden Error:
You don't have permission to access /~magnus/geo/geohack.php on this server.
Apache Server at tools.wikimedia.de Port 80
This has happened to several other people as well, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Help_desk#403_Forbidden_error_on_coordinates for discussion.
I can't reproduce this bug. Maybe it is intermittent?
Geohack is on the toolserver, which has been having problems lately.
GeoHack was disabled on the toolserver, because it was causing a DNS flood.
Obviously not a MediaWiki issue. There is a Toolserver Bugzilla (which doesn't seem to be working at the moment), so I suggest going there.
To be fair; the bug was filed in the Wikimedia component, and if the Toolserver-specific BugZilla is unavailable, then there's not much point directing people there - if a report here doesn't get acted upon (which is quite possible), then a better option is to email zedler-admins at wikimedia dot org with a report.
