So now it banned MY IP address

Your connection to this server has been blocked in this server's firewall.

You need to contact the server owner for further information.
Your blocked IP address is 166.137.240.117
This server's host name is cpane01.myhostcenter.com

Maybe I shouldn't blame Putin for so much and should stop calling Our Dear Leader "The Big Orange Guy with Little TRex hands"

tl;dr

i didn't do anything. i'm in the process of fixing it. it involves stuff only the web host can do, so i'm waiting for them to respond to me email. i am already aware of any problems, and i can't even remember the last time i banned anyone for anything. i am constantly unbanning people and trying to convince the rest of you not ban like 1/5 of our users for no reason


It's still ok to ban Manny,though, right?

yeah , banning manny is still funny lol

also please post or pm me your ip that is being blocked.. i have to specifically ask them to unblock it i think. the error log says we are being bombarded with blocked ip addresses from china....and now you're the 4th poster who has been blocked by the server i the last 24 hours. so it's probably autobanning a lot of ip addresses at a very fast rate i assume for 4 posters to be banned in just a 24 hour period.

i also have no clue how/why it decides to ban an ip. there doesn't seem to be any rhme or reason to it.

People need to stop perma-banning manny's accounts though. It ruins it for everyone else.

Mine is an IP ban. eggs offered to help heal my IP wounds. He is a benevolent human.

When have I claimed to have ever made a good post? I resent that insinuation!

I'm no tech genius, but there is a huge difference between bans within this board, and bans issued by the host. I'm sure these cpane bans mean you can't post on any board hosted by the host company on their servers. Since you only try to post on this board, and not others hosted on the cpane servers, you can't see the extent of your ban. Point being, I doubt Eggs can fix this, other than emailing the host company, and asking that they not ban legitimate board users IP's based on some ridiculously aggressive IP banning security program that seems to select everything for banning in the name of security.

by the way i haven't ignored this... they've just been incredibly unhelpful and transferring my ticket back and forth to different employees without including the entire conversation so i keep getting unhelpful responses from different people giving non-answers to questions/problems i didn't exactly ask and that aren't really even the main issue.

also they told me their was no suspicious traffic in our data usage and i'm like I JUST BLOCKED CHINA WITH THE .HTACCESS FILE AND NOW THE ENTIRE ERROR LOG IS FILLED WITH THOUSANDS "ACCESS DENIED" REQUESTS FROM RANDOM SKETCHY PORN SITES WEBSITE URLS TRYING TO CONNECT TO RANDOM FILES THAT MAKE THE MESSAGE FORUM WORK FOR SOME REASON. HOW IS THAT NOT SUSPICIOUS??????

i have no idea if your ip's have been unbanned (but yeah, i haven't gotten an answer about why the server started blocking our users ip addresses suddenly out of no where. either.. but in my expirience with web hosting, pwd is exactly right... and it usually happens when the server sees a bunch of sketchy usual traffic or connection requests and the firewall goes into "high security" mode and sometimes sends out a message to a bunch of "blacklist" databases that remove you from google and set off people's virus scanners as a security warning when they visit your site until you you get youself removed r..i haven't othered to heck if that has happened, but it has happened to us once before, and i had to write a bunch of emails and make a bunch of phone calls to all sorts of people saying "please take us off your blacklist, we're a red sox forum, not a russian phishing site trying to steal identities, i promise"


they are starting to piss me off and i haven't had enough time to deal with it completely, but i've been trying. hopefully it's not a huge pain in the ass for anyone.. and i guess the percentage sign isn't that important (they keep telling me i have to turn of the mod_security thing that's causing it.. i keep telling them it's not in cpanel where it's supposed to be, and we keep hitting a dead end in that conversation i keep having with them over and over again lol)

everything should be fixed now. i figured it out... right now no one should be banned for any reason

let me know if anything goes wrong again


we can type the % sign again also without causing an error (you're welcome, sorry it took so long. except for obp, who made it as difficult as possible for me to try and fix his problem lol)


but i figured out how to disable mods_security so the firewall settings are back to normal.

no clue what was setting it off in the first place..., but i figured out how to make it stop getting triggered at least (i think i did anyway)


right now the only reason anyone should be blocked or banned is if you are trying to view the board from a country that isn't america or canada.

no one should have any issues at all starting now..

but right now the ip ban list is cleared...the banned name list is mostly cleared except for a handful of old manny and reddick names....there are no ip's being blocked by the server, and the firewall is configured back to the way it's been for the last 9 years (up until something changed last month for some reason, which i cannot figure out...but it's not fucked anymore which is all that matters i suppose..i could not find anything in common with the ip's that got blocked by the firewall randomly...i even ran them all against the blacklist checker and they all came back clean...soo.... your guess is as good as mine lol)

let me know ASAP if something goes wrong and you notice any board errors or are blocked/banned again randomly (or you haven't been unbanned at all)
