I tried to install the nginx proxy on my server to speed things up but when I do SMF bans me. LMAO I have to restore the db and files from a backup which only takes a min or three. I can't figure out why it is doing this except that spamblocker is blocking because of the proxy?

Here's the docs on it. Maybe you can shed some light on it or at least rule out Spamblocker?




Yes, it was spamblocker causing it and it bans anything not in the whitelist. Les helped and he discovered that you can still access the site using an Icognito or Private browsing window. I guided him to delete the blacklist log and add our ip's to the whitelist but it may still ban others. I have disabled the mod for now so it doesn't ban anyone else.

Also, you must delete the blacklist first then add the names to the whitelist or you will get an error stating so. And yes, it will ban everything.

EDIT: Hmmm, maybe the mod is a little too good? LOL
