Manual Install Instructions for SMF

Description:


The ultimate Bot / Spider / Bad User fighter! BotBanish will monitor and recognize bots / spiders / bad users by their behavior and banish them from your system without any user intervention. Dynamically block bad bot / spiders / bad users from your websites and forums. Just install it and forget it! BotBanish will do the rest.

BotBanish is made to monitor and protect SMF, OpenCart and Websites.

* * * WARNING * * *

BotBanish WILL ALTER YOUR ROOT .htaccess FILE, so backup your file before any changes are made!!!

Limited Testing Note: If you do not want this application to make direct changes to your .htaccess file, you can change the name of the file to another name and the changes will be applied to that file and then you can then decide to make the changes manually to your htaccess file at another time. If this is done, the bots will NOT be blocked until you change your .htaccess file.

Until then the bots will be allowed access to your system and you will get many more notifications because BotBanish will see bot's & IP addresses that should not have been seen again.

The line in the Settings_Client.php file to change is:

$botbanish_htaccess_name = $botbanish_webrootpath . '.htaccess';

* * * THIS IS NOT THE RECOMMENDED LONG TERM USE AND SHOULD BE AVOIDED * * *
* * * USE OF THIS METHOD FOR MORE THAN 48 HOURS WILL LEAD TO ACCOUNT TERMINATION WITHOUT NOTICE!!! * * *
