IP Banning


I had some IP's Banned for abuse on my website or causing problems and I went to look at it this morning and all IP's were removed. I think there is a bug in the IP banning system as the IP's should of remained on. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to PFH forum! If you mean the control panel "IP banning system", try using /htdocs/.htaccess file and add manually. dotfiles are hidden by default.

    ErrorDocument 403     /?p=403
    ErrorDocument 404     /?p=404
    deny from 155
    deny from 155.133

    It has nothing to do with that,
    He is talking about the forum email. It has not been verified. Please check your Email. Also be sure it is not in SPAM, because it can be there.

    Welcome to PFH!

    As for HTACCESS. Follow these instructions:

    1. Go to your accounts and click your manage button
    2. Click your control panel, and wait a few seconds
    3. Locate your "Online file manager" button
    4. Locate a htdocs folder (can be in / folder or in a subdomain folder) and enter it
    5. after entering it click the "New File" button
    6. Your vision should be this: You will need to change this to the image on step 7.
    7. Change the information: (The following is the example provided above.)
    8. Save
      And your done. Hope this helped

    You are very welcome. But again, your FORUM email is not verified, scene we are moderators we can view your roles and it clearly states "Not Verified."
