Support » Plugins and Hacks » coppermine and referrer filter

  • Hi,

    If have wordpress installed with the coppermine plugin. Now they have a filter installed on the server which filters referrers like http://www.mydomein.com/index.php?and then something with http://www.anotherdomein etc.

    Somewhere in the integration wordpress-coppermine is this kind of referrer but I can’t find it. On one wordpressblog everything is running fine, on the other i got stuck in this filter. It’s always when I log in or out, so I was looking in the wp-login. But because I only get stuck in this filter in wordpress in the combination with this coppermine plugin, it must be something there. I’ve been looking in the plugin files, the wp-login, deactivate the coppermine plugin, deleted all the pluginfiles from the server and putt them back again, i’ve the idea that i have to look for the solution in the database. I can’t figger out where. There must be a referrer to an url with http:// which causes the trouble. Is this an known problem? The filter is to stop hacking. Anyone know where to look in the database?

    Thanks

    Umm, what server? Are you talking about where you are hosted?

    What you are describing is a normal ruleset associated with mod_security, used to prevent php include exploits.

    Anyone know where to look in the database?

    Your database has nothing to do with anything you’ve described.

    Yeh, the server where my website is hosted. Maybe it is a normal ruleset, but it’s causing problems now, when I want to log in or out, i get the message that it’s blocked. I know the database is not causing the problem, but some setting considering the coppermine plugin. All my settings of the plugin stay when i delete the plugin. So they must be in the database i think. I think it has something to do with sharing users of logging in together in coppermine and wordpress at the same time. I have this combination on several websites, but on 2 I’ve changed things. They also gave an errorpage both, when I logged in in the adminsection of wordpress. There was a short time the coppermine page, with error written in it, and after that time the adminpage of wordpress. I thought I found that problem, but now I have this filterproblems

    I can tell you how to disable mod_security, if in fact, its causing problems.

    I am NOT going to go back and forth with you about your database.

    I thought that was something on the server. How can I disable that? I know my provider developped a filter whcich controls if somebody is hacking a script like Joomla, Mambo phpBB, WordPress etc. In the information is says “When the filter is activated block all querystrings with “”=http://” will be blocked by the servers. Further they advise us change f.e. the refererchecks manually in the source so it won’t be needed to use the querystring.

    If this is a mod_security I don’t know. I only asume that somewhere in the script there is a querystring with =http://
    I hope you understand what i mean. I’m not native english and i tried to translate the letter from the provider

    put this at the top of your .htaccess:

    <IfModule mod_security.c>
    SecFilterEngine Off
    </IfModule>

    If i don’t have a .htaccess do i have to make one and is this all that i have to put in or do i need more text?
