  1. Securing your community

    This is a great blog, for the past week, my site has been hacked twice. The first time I realized I did not harden my sever enough. I spent a lot of time hardening apache, using iptables, changing ssh port, blocking mysql port and so on. I thought I did a great job and then yesterday server got hacked again. Luckily I had a backup of my entire /var/www/html and restored it and everything was fine. I really do not know what the hacker is doing, except breaking the site where i get no access to the admin panel, and anyone who tried to login would get a white screen. I think the attacker was dropping some sort of php files and it cause the site to break. I tried to install mod_security and seem to work but when I applied ModSecurity Core Rule Set, my site went down, could not do anything. I had to disable. Does anyone have a good set of rules specifically that will work with IP board? Also does anyone know is php 5.4 more secure then 5.3.18? If so will it work fine with ipboard 3.3.4? Also is apahce 2.4 more secure then 2.2.15? What about nginx vs apache in terms of security? Thanks
  2. Download: Shoutbox

    I found my mistake, permissions were set wrong on the cache files some were not set to 777, while I hit recache did not realize it did not do every file, I made that change recache the skin and now it works. So can ignore my above post but thank you for the help =)
  3. Download: Shoutbox

    For some reason I can only get the shoutbox to show up on my main index page if I choose the sidebar option. I really want it up top above all the forum categories, but once I choose the option Above Forum Categories (Index Board only), it disappears. Any ideas how I can fix that? I tried hitting recache skin sets after making change and still does not show up. Only way to get it to show up is use sidebar option.
  4. IP.Nexus 1.5 Dev Update: Fraud Rules

    This is amazing, thank you! I have recently lost over $200 because of paypal problems and disputes where the users make up lots of lies. But every time it's because of new members or fake accounts. This will solve all my problems!
  5. Anyway to add multiple message support? So I can set up 2 or 3 different messages for different usergroups?
  6. [HQ] My Followed Topics Hook

    The plugin doesn't work for me anymore. It just never updates and sticks with one post. You said you released version 1.0.2 but the file I downloaded is stil 1.0.1. PM me if you want to look into it. But great idea nontheless
  7. Is there any way of mass deleting ban filters? Without clicking the checkbox on each one and hitting "delete selected".
  8. Why do people love to hate Apple?

    They don't own one. If you buy one, you'll like it. You know you paid more for it, but in the end you're satisfied with the product and price. They are in no way an inferior product.
  9. I noticed some of my staff had this happen to them. I didn't know why it was happening so thank you! and yes, I have the same error. Also, the latest version seems to have broken my site. Fatal error: Call to undefined method IPSLib::makeNameFormatted() in /home/XXXXX/public_html/forum/hooks/staffOnlineSidebarBlock_312f198cc43b7baa994a7878fcb1a67e.php on line 110
  10. Flag Topics

    Hey, just a reminder, this is a great mod that would be even better if you could add our own reasons in the flag topic area. Thanks again for the mod, and no problem if you don't have time to do it.
  11. If you got the confirmation email saying your payment was accepted, then you need to log out of the forums and back in, then everything will update.
  12. Why isn't Beta 3 out yet? (wanting beta 2 is too mainstream)

    1. AndyF


      Beta 3 is not out for the same reason 3.3 is not out, they don't exist yet.

    2. Breadfan


      I don't think we'll be seeing Beta3.. ;)

  14. So frustrated and upset with ip.Board

    Alright, my huge bias towards IPB aside, ip.content lacks the proper documentation for beginner to intermediate users. But you are really exaggerating the problem. There is nothing wrong with all the other ip products because most are easy to use and have enough documentation, it's just ip.content. Maybe you should add in this topic what exactly you need help with ip.content? Setting up a homepage is rather easy, you just upload 2 files into the home of your site and create an article. (this is dumbed down because I actually forget how I did it :P) Anyways, I will say it took me a while to just figure that out. So what I'm saying is, just calm down, relax, take a deep breath and separate your problem from your rant. With all this said.. I still can't find out how to add a <title> to the frontpage and it's driving me crazy. I know it's something ridiculously simple.. I just can't find it.
