Any mod stop the forum when load is too high?

Hello, I need to stop the forum when the load is too high. I was going to do a simple perl script that checks every X minutes if the load is too high. If so the script would rename the folder /phpbb to /originalphpbb and /stopphpbb to /phpbb. In that /stopphpbb folder I would host files such as inde...

Re: Any mod/s against clones?

There are more ways to know who is a clone. Most of the people use always the same password for their clones. They also use the same e-mail service. A script would only need to compare password, email domain and of course the IP (only a recent IP). Against proxies you can always use: Block Open Prox...

Re: Any mod/s against clones?

As far as I know the ISP do not change the IP's to the users in a current session. The idea is to only prevent registrations from the same IP in a small period of time (5min-10min). So members who are using the forum they can not register again unless they logout and come back later going "directly"...

Any mod/s against clones?

I was looking for any mod that helps to prevent the creation of clones but surprisingly I couldn't find anything. I wonder if there is anything against this. For example a mod that prevents people creating another account when posting from the same IP than a username that was logout soon, also compa...

Re: [01/12/06] Spam Words

I 'm not sure if there is a problem in the mod. I could avoid the filter by editing the messages altough I made some changes and now is working properly. Maybe the problem is that I have Log Actions Mod . That mod adds another if ( $error_msg == '' ) line to the code so to fix it you have add a copy...

Re: [01/12/06] Spam Words

By the way, a very useful code for avoiding spam words. This code censore the following popular trick by analysing the message in just one line: W W W . S P A M . C O M # #-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------ # $message = preg_replace('#\[url=|\]|\[/url\]#si', '', $message); # #--...

SPAM Word mod stops that kind of trick but it isn't a substitution mod of Intellicensor (they are different things)

where did you get this piece of code from? if ($userdata['user_spam_warnings'] = $spam_config['user_warnings'] && $spam_config['user_warnings'] != 0 && $userdata['user_level'] != ADMIN) it should be if ($userdata['user_spam_warnings'] > $spam_config['user_warnings'] && $spam_config['user_warnings']...

Re: Lowest server load; phpbb2 vs. phpbb3

It also depends on the users online and the database size. One software forum might work better than other if the database and traffic are small but maybe with quite a lot traffic and a higher database it can be different, that's when phpbb3 should work better than phpbb2.

Re: Lowest server load; phpbb2 vs. phpbb3

Ok, thanks. Can I ask to the community about a comparison based only in this criteria (server load) between phpbb3, IPB and vBulletin? For mods: If you think that phpbb official forum is not the right place to do this comparison don't hesitate to delete the post. If I asked it was because I saw that...

Lowest server load; phpbb2 vs. phpbb3

Obviously phpbb3 has more functions than phpbb2, it's obviously powerful and usually that means higher server load. But this depends on many facts so it's not necessaraly true, because of that I want to be sure (in fact I read from a Support Team Member "phpBB3 is specifically built to be powerful, ...

Well to be honest I don't want a mod for this. I just was asking if it's included by default. I was very interesting on installing this software until I realized that no reputation system is available. Yes, I can instal a mod, I have done this several times but I do not intall mods that changes the ...
