Support » Plugin: IP Geo Block » Be Careful

  • I downloaded the plugin and activated it and it rendered my site inaccessible. I could not even log in. “Forbidden” is all that appears. I had to use ftp to access the site and delete the plugin folder to regain access to my site. Beware!
    Update- The bug seems to have been fixed and is a great addition to site security as I noticed much of the traffic to my site was coming from hackers. This adds additional security when you can close the door to a region “bent on malicious attacks”.

    Sorry for your inconvenience.

    There are mainly 2 reasons this plugin blocks you out. One is of course due to the lack of function of this plugin. I found a bug in place to prevent this kind of problem. The other is due to the inconsistency of the IP address – country database where I should find the good solution between convenience and inconvenience. I would like to continue to improve this plugin’s functionality to prevent this kind of issue.

    Thanks for giving me a heads up!

    I fixed this kind of “Banned out immediately after activation” issue. Please refer to 2.1.5 Release Note.
