[ABD] Prevent hotlinking

Post by stokerpiller » Sun Jul 27, 2008 7:00 am

MOD title: Prevent hotlinking
MOD description: Here is a little addon for Your phpBB3 board that prevents hotlinking and people stealing Your bandwidth.
It affects all files that are uploaded with the "Upload attachment" function.
Uploaded Avatars, attached files and attached images are included
This way it only causes very little server load because it only checks files placed in the download folder.
But it is possible to protect everything :)

MOD version: 1.0.1
phpBB version: Tested on 3.0.0 - 3.0.4
Installation Time: 4 minutes
MOD Format: None at the moment
MOD download and demo: http://www.phpbb3bbcodes.com/prevent-ho ... -t431.html

Did You follow the guide?
It sounds like You forgot to edit this line in the .htaccess file before You uploaded it to the download folder:

Code: Select all

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://(.+.)?yourdomain.com/ [NC]
Please replace yourdomain.com with the name of Your domain.

Did that solve the problem?

unfortunately not !

the images atached to any topic and the atachments don`t work even if i delete the download folder and clear the cache, i just get the The requested document was not found on this server.
it goes to /download/file.php?id=123

my atachments are in the /files folder and your mod is in /download folder
that download folder has only 1 file, the .htaccess
the image file is in the root folder

why i don`t see the avatars even if i delete the download folder and all the files related to this mod?

and i use php 5.2.4

I know that attachments are placed in the files folder, but they are shown as placed in the download folder.
Therefore the .htaccess file should be uploaded to the download folder as explained in the guide.

If You have uploaded it to the files folder, You have overwritten the .htaccess file that allready was there.
The .htaccess file in the files folder looks like this:

Code: Select all

<Files *>
	Order Allow,Deny
	Deny from All
</Files>
Please restore it.

Have You deleted Your entire download folder?

I will help You out if You write EXACTLY what You have done.

Does not work for me! :roll:

I have a board that was upgraded from the V2 board and all the files are in the /files/ directory. I am still being hotlinked.

Yes, phpBB3 puts the attachments in the files folder. But that doesn't matter, it works anyway because the link says the download folder :)

Can You post some of Your attachments her?
Both zip and with the Img BBCode.

Nice MOD.

Works fine.

Try to hotlink this image:

http://www.lpi-clan.de/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=3718
http://www.lpi-clan.de/download/file.php?id=142

Only phpbb.com , phpbb.de and lpi-clan.de are allowed to hotlink this image.

Dr.Death -> Thanks for testing.

AMH99 -> I cant follow Your links. One gives a white page and one ask if I want to install phpBB?
So it looks like it is working except it should show the no hotlink image.
Did You upload it to the root of Your forum?
Have You edited the .htaccess file correct - can You post the content here.
