I just ant to ensure my forum is fully secured from hackers and DDOS attack. Enabling Convert URLs to page titles will it expose my forum origin IP address even when am using cloudflare?
I use cloudflare and I would have loved to enable Convert URLs to page titles but for the fear of not exposing my server IP address I left it disable.Are you concerned about exposing the server IP address?
If not, you don't need to do anything.
It converts URLs in messages to linked page titles. For example, https://example.com would be converted to Example domain. This can provide readers with a better indicator of what the linked content is.Sorry guys i'm lost about this option and to be honest i don't know what is the purpose of it even reading the option description...
Not really. You would be revealing your server IP address to the proxy by necessity, so you shouldn't use a proxy you don't trust or control.Is there an easy and free way to enable the option without exposing my server IP?
Can someone clarify what would happen if the tinyproxy fails, for whatever reason, would the website still be accessible and will it expose the IP then? What would need to actually happen for me to worry about the IPs being exposed and for me to act? As I have all this set up but want to know as a precaution.
