BulletProof Security
[resolved] New Bulletproof Security install affecting phpBB (2 posts)

    I've recently installed and configured BPS on our website:
    Morris Paint Website

    All seems to be working correctly with one minor issue. I have a phpBB 3.0.8 installation in a sub-directory of the root folder. It is still performing correctly except for one issue I've found. When I log into the Admin control panel and go to manage users, there is a function to "find a member" by searching the member database. When I click this link, instead of taking me to the search dialog it now opens a separate window with the forum index page displayed instead. This was working correctly only moments before installing BPS with no changes having been made to the forum installation in the mean time.

    Any help on sorting this out would be appreciated.

    Hi,

    The way .htaccess files work is that if a parent folder has an .htaccess file then all subfolders under the parent will also inherit the .htaccess rules unless an .htaccess file exists in that subfolder or you add a skip rule like this to the parent .htaccess file:

    # Do not apply the BPS filters to files located in this folder
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/your-phpbb-folder-name/ [NC]
    RewriteRule . - [S=30]

    This is assuming that the BPS filters are not playing nice with phpbb. If it is a rewriting issue then it will require further details for me to troubleshoot what is going on. Try the skip rule above and if that does not work then please post a comment on the AITpro website. I try to check the WP Forum as often as possible, but i miss questions like yours occaisonally because I am not notified immeditately when they are posted - hence the 6 day wait for a response from me.

    Thanks,
    Ed
