Lost Ban IPs Functionality

Post by PHenry1025 » Thu Sep 20, 2018 9:19 pm

After banning all Russian IPs beginning with 5., I lost the ability to access the Ban IP utility (all other ban functionality are working as normal).

Is this a memory or storage issue?

What steps can I take to get the Ban IP utility working again?

Thanks.

It's a memory thing. You should instead use htaccess to ban Russian IP blocks. Easily googled.

I spoke prematurely of the effects:

After I logged off as Administrator, my Forum was no longer accessible. I had to restore a backup database.

bonelifer: I am not following your advise on google and .htaccess. Can you be more specific.

You can use your .htaccess file to block ranges of IPs. Use Google to find out how.

Do you have a link to the google reference you are alluding to?
