Archived ⇒ Bad IP error


Hi, I have been setting up my dragonfly site for about 1 week and yesterday i started getting this error.
Bad IP You are banned from this site due to a bad ip.

I'm the admin, How can i be banned from my own site.
The website was still being set up so there was only myself as a member and superadmin. But now i cant even access my website.

Please help!

Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
Linux/Apache 2.0/4.1.14-standard/5.0.4/Dragonfly 9.1.2.1


That happened to me as well, its a flooding security feature that is turned on by default. You hit the site to much, you gonna get banned. I used another PC with another IP addy (work/home), logged in as admin, went into the security options.

Made flooding inactive and then removed the ban on my primarily used IP addy.

As a side note. I had to change my theme to the deafult one as well, as the theme I used would not allow me to delete/remove banned IP's. Probably just a missing table in my theme.

You can also go directly into your SQL database and manually remove the banned IP. Off the top of my head I don't remeber the exact syntax/table however.
