Why am now getting this problem, I have a member site in which users need to join.
From the Welcome screen to the login screen, I now get this message:

"A problem has been detected with your web server that may cause your login to fail – if it does, click back and read the rest of this message. Some servers are poorly configured, and invisibly redirect traffic from one URL to another, and this invisible redirection results in lost submitted form data. Try changing your base URL in the config editor so that it doesn't contain www. then come back to this URL (make sure to refresh the page) and try again. If problems persist, contact your web host. This autodetection will not be done once you have opened your website."

My site is not closed, and changing to no www is not an option that I want.
I've never got this before, why now? and what can I do about this?

Found the Problem.

The only thing I did to the site before this happened, was to manually ban an IP.

Removing the banned IP form the Banned IP list, made the error go away.

I think you banned your own server's IP ;).

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Added some code for the next version to filter out attempts to ban the current user's IP or the server's.

Also removed incorrect bit about " This autodetection will not be done once you have opened your website.", as that is not true since the last version (or some other recent version, not 100% sure which).

Your right it was my own website IP (working late at night does these things).

This brings up a question?

Is there a away to have filtered out (out of view) IP's that are not logged into the website, but still have ocPortal automatically ban IP’s when needed and as the administrator had setup up?

What I would like to see is two list
1) all IP's that tried to login (Hackers, bots, etc).
2) all IP's (By user name) that are logged in the site or joined the site.
