Would you use a Cloud server (like from AWS, DigitalOcean, Vultr etc) or a webhosting (like GoDaddy, Namecheap etc) for hosting your XenForo forums?
I'm planning on using Cloudflare for caching, AWS S3 (or anything similar maybe like DigitalOcean's S3) for storing images, resources etc and...
Would love some thoughts and advice.
I am a noob. Just back in the forum game. Wanted that shiny padlock and seen that Cloudflare would offer that on the free tier.
I set everything up and went through the cloudflare configuration and enabled everything they suggested, including caching I...
XF\Http\Request contains 184.108.40.206/12 as a Cloudflare IP address. Cloudflare is reallocating part of 220.127.116.11/12 for use by WARP and Gateway, meaning that it will soon serve untrusted traffic. The following changes should be made prior to May 7:
Hi Everyone !
Though there're several thread on this, but I couldn't figure out any appropriate one for latest XF 2.2 release .
So, could anyone provide information on how to configure CSP with latest XF ? (for additional info: I'm using cloudflare & adsense) .
I made this script as a proof of concept to learn and practice bash scripting, it came out pretty good and I'm using it on a couple sites including my Xenforo board. I hope this will be useful to some of you.
In the video I explain to you how it works and show you how to code it.
Quickly add a Cloudflare Firewall Rule to block registration from specified countries.
Go to Cloudflare > Firewall > Firewall Rules > Create a firewall rule
Look for small text link as you scroll down to Edit expression
Paste the following rule, making sure to edit the registration URLs to be...
I have a problem with ip addresses on the page. Cloudflare IP appears on the IP address, but not on everyone. I had to ban several users and a problem arose because they had an IP cloude assigned.
I used this code and pasted into config.php, but it doesn't work.
This addon enables "chunked uploads" in XenForo and allows you to set a virtually higher maximum upload limit up to 128GB regardless of your server configuration.
Option to define the chunk size of each upload. This value cannot be higher than the maximum upload file size reported by...
I have Cloudflare setup with my XenForo forum, with these settings enabled:
Rocket Loader: Enabled
Browser Cache TTL: 30 minutes
Security Level: Low
Cache Level: Ignore Query String
When a user logs in, and passes the two-step verification process (and...
When a broken image is posted and processed by the XenForo image proxy, a "missing-image.png" file is shown in its place. This "missing-image.png" is not served with the optimal Cache-Control HTTP headers. For visitors using proxy servers (or website owners using caching services like...
I'm not sure if this is a issue or a suggestion.
When you turn off your site and upgrade XenForo then it will return a 5.xx status code.
If you run CloudFlare then this will go into a spasm over that status code, as it considers your server unreachable. The CF admin panel fills up with all...
Since switching to CloudFlare I have been getting feedback from ranking members that they get infinite captchas on the following pages:
When looking in the cloudflare admin panel I see that the above pages trigger about 30 rules.
What makes the issue more...
Many websites are using CloudFlare. Even xenforo.com Unfortunately CloudFlare does not offer firewal rules for XenForo. (It does for WordPress)
This means that CloudFlare blocks legitimate users without admins being aware of it. The CF log just displays a long list of blocked users. Checking...
CloudFlare is used by many xenforo sites including xenforo.com
CloudFlare analyses user behavious and blocks suspect behavior or throws up Captcha.
Unfortunately CloudFlare does not have a XenForo module like it has for WordPress. It makes no distinction between members and guests. Nor between...
I have two separate IPs hosted by digital ocean, I read I needed two servers with web servers to take advantage of cloudflare otherwise its impossible to hide your IP by hosting mail on the same server its sending from. I am running VestaCP on both servers and have disabled the mail function all...
I'm using XenForo version 1.5.11 and I was wondering if there's a guide on how to configure CloudFlare's flexible SSL ceterificate with my forum? I'd like it all HTTPS and with a green URL bar.
I'm unsure where to even start :/
Between 2016-09-22 - 2017-02-18 passwords, private messages, API keys, and other sensitive data were leaked by Cloudflare to random requesters. Data was cached by search engines, and may have been collected by random adversaries over the past few months...
I'm getting DDOSSED to the hilt. Now using CloudFlare and have a new IP for the forums. It appears the IP can be revealed still as it's in the email headers.
How can I mask this or prevent this from happening?
As at the moment I have had to disable all email features including email to...
