@rilame,

This is either a plugin conflict or a conflict with your security rules/plugins. In any case, this is not wpForo bug for sure. Some plugin or something from the server side conflicts with that admin page. I'd also suggest check all firewalls and security configurations.

Thanks for the reply. I've tried disabling all the plugins except wpForo already.  Even reset options does not work. 

I just did new WordPress installation on new hosting. On clean installation I installed wpForo plugin. Tried updating options from tool menu but no luck. Error still persist.

@rilame What Wordpress health says? What debug . log reports?

What kind of hosting is that? pre-installed? Managed? You installed it?

Ok this is definitely a hosting / server setup issue and not related to wpForo plugin,
