Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction:

I found the solution by incorporating the #China spammers snippet in .htaccess and adding two restrictions specific to my problems.

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

phpBB ships with a .htaccess file in the phpBB3 directory that is uploaded as part of the install/update/upgrade.

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

Or just ban it at the server level like I said in the first reply. Can do it in your cpanel or ask the host to do it for you.
Ban what?

Did you even take the time to read the post from P_I and the link he provided?

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

P_I

Thanks for the post. I read through the link you provided and it seems to be on target.

I have not used .htaccess so it would be very helpful if you would give me a step by step on how you implement this solution.

I have a working knowledge of regular expressions.

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

There isn't a permission to do that that I know of, unless you have an extension.
You need to double check this.

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

Just to be clear, I did not say that guest are registering. I said that during these multiple guest logins, there are always by what appears to be registering activity.

Since my permissions are set up so that guests cannot increment the viewer count some non-guest activity must be doing it.

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

Re: Banning a Multiple login Guest Spammer

Hi Elias,
With phpBB’s permissions you can just hide the forums from them.
Can you sketch out how hiding the forums can be done.

Thanks

Re: How can I reset Most user ever online

Thanks to both, it worked for me.

I found

phpMyAdmin
phpbb_config: record_online_date record_online_users

easiest to follow.
