Re: Purging Doesn't Always Work

Try uploading a simple test.css file, example.com/test.css

Code: Select all

body {
color:#000
}
Load it into the browser. Make an edit and upload new version. Clear CL cache and refresh browser to see if the edits are present.

If that fails something else along the line is caching it like your ISP.

Re: Use whatismyipaddess instead of default

I don't care about location. Where did I mention that? I do care about the ISP and to make sure it isn't cloud, etc since I block a good majority of that at the ASN level. Fact of the matter is that the current way that this is implemented sucks. Whether it has ...

Upgrade 3.0.8 to 3.2.5 without losing content

Hi All. Newbee here.

We have phpBB 3.0.8 and the ISP is upgrading the server to php7.2

I see in the Automatic Update Package appears to only work from 3.1.0 upwards.

How can I upgrade from 3.0.8 and not lose any data / content / settings ?

Regards

Re: VPN discussion: Are they necessary?

... that there are DNS requests that even though you use TLS, it's not encapsulated. As I already noted HTTPS requests will not hide the IP from your ISP, it's included in the header. The domain can be guessed. Securing the DNS lookup is irrelevant as far as HTTPS by itself goes. You can secure the ...

Re: VPN discussion: Are they necessary?

the main reason of consumer VPN is to hide what you are doing from your ISP. for instance, if you are downloading things that maybe you shouldn't be. If you are using a good VPN then your ISP has not idea what sites you are visiting or what you are doing. the ...

Block spam via -jdrop
