Other things can cause a url.  I thing your trigger is too low.  Longterm Ban should be really now or never at that setting.

I don't understand what you mean.
Check out my new website, MyAnimeClub.net. I plan to create the largest anime community, and most fun and user-friendly anime forum in the world. It's still in the development stage though.

I increased my trigger back to 0.4. I accidentally DOS'd my own forum.  :D

Thanks for the reply.


I turnning on de eval, but errors are presented in the same way


Code: [Select]
http://forum_name/index.php?topic=2514.msg%msg_id%
2: in_array() [<a href='function.in-array'>function.in-array</a>]: Wrong datatype for second argument

2: array_intersect() [<a href='function.array-intersect'>function.array-intersect</a>]: Argument #2 is not an array

Code: [Select]
http://forum_name/index.php?topic=2549.0;prev_next=prev
8: Undefined variable: removals
File: /home/user_name/public_html/Sources/Load.php
Line: 934

I reinstalled 1.1.3 without problems, but when I enable the "Enable Testing", I still have the same errors.
when I have version 1.1.1 installed, these errors do not occur.

I do not know what procedures I need to do to solve this.

Thank you.


I am having the same problem , but it happened weeks after the initial install when I went to blocking violations. The errors are not bot hits, but were logged when I logged in, attempted to post. My test account was treated as a guest with no permissions. My admin account was working as usual.

I may try an earlier mod version to see of it functions as it has in the past.

I have a thread on SMF Helper about this that was started while I was trying to fix my forum

Was your "test account " blociked?  If not, another user or bot could have been on line the same time as you.  The only way you cam confirm is to view your cpanel visitors log the time the error occurred.

As stated earlier the mod does not alter Security.php and that line in Load.php.  Because of this it is hard to believe that the mod generated that error in your error log.  Please give details for your visitor log in cpanel and confirm that your test is repeatable.

I will try and confirm the cpanel logs. The error logs were all tied to registered members as I recall

But, I can confirm that removing forum firewall 1.1.3 returned the function of my forum to normal with no errors in the log for the last 24 hours. The mod had been installed since the day SMF sent out notice of the update. I had been using the logging function without blocking violations since that date with no problem. Then,  when I enabled blocking if violations on Friday night and went to bed. Next mornig the error log was 85 pages and no one had posted except for an admin

On my last attempt, installing the mod caused a situation were all registered members other than admins were unable to post, IM, read messages or any other action reserved for registered members. They  were able to log in, but were restricted in access to that of a guest. I attempted the removal and re-installation of forum firewall 1.1.3  twice to confirm

As an admin, no problem was encountered other than a very long list of errors logged eerily similar to the examples I quoted.

The install of the mod was  normal with no errors, and the issues began when I enabled logging of violations or blocking. The problem would then persist until I removed the mod.

I downloaded a copy of the mod version 1.1.1 and installed it. My forum has been working normally with zero error and members are reporting that all their problems have been solved.

I trust that you know more about how this works than any other, and I am not questioning your expertise. Just reporting the issue and hoping to find a solution because I really do want to keep the mod in use

It is an error log and the forum is functioning correctly.  The errors are from SMF sections that the mod does not edit. I will look at it but honestly errors of that nature are usually due to bugs in SMF.  This is why I assumed bots are hitting it to draw out weakness.  At this stage of SMF's release I doubt the errors are anything but minor.  That being said, I would have to edit SMF code to correct and I really do not wish to debug SMF source.

I see nothing to worry about.

Look in your SMF database for the SMF Settings Table, then find the Firewall_Enable entry. Change the entry from 1 to 0.

cPanel > phpMyAdmin > Your SMF database > smf_settings > forumfirewall_enable > change 1 to 0

You mean "Search" in this thread. It would take a long time to read through the entire thread. People should learn how to use the search function of the forum. It would save them and us lots of time.

Hello all,

I recently installed the firewall feature to my Forum. I had serious issues with it after install, and tried to uninstall. Know I can't log in to my forum, I get a forbidden message. I tried to remove the firewall package from my server...........and I seem to have made things worse. Any help would be appreciated.

Forum is at: http://www.wcgowacki.com/KancerKidz/ [nofollow]

Where can I see the firewall option? Im using Rc2 4,

When I click direct to setting something after the installation, I just get directed to Administration Center.
