Support » Plugin: Tor Blocker » permissions cause fatal error with ip geo block

  • cross posting (also at: ) this issue in case it helps with development of tor blocker:

    With a server that has some tight folder permissions and apapche setup, getting a conflict with tor blocker plugins and ip geo block.
    Warning: chmod(): Operation not permitted in /home/user/public_html/websiteDotcom/blog/wp-content/plugins/tor-exit-nodes-blocker/torblocker.php on line 699 Error: No permissions for writing to GeoIP direcotry.

    This server requires me to manually add the ftp password within wordpress each and every time a plugin or theme is added / updated – so it’s folder/file writing ability is a bit different than many other standard WP installs.

    Not sure if the folder perms / ownership in apache setup is causing the issue, but updating the tor blocker pluging and this ip geo block cause a weird issue where the site breaks – and there are error messages that print on screen as being related to Ip Geo Block, that remain on the output even if the ip geo block plugin is deleted.

    I was only able to undo the errors that displayed by renaming/removing the tor blocker plugin folder… but I think this error is being created by the combo of tor blocker and ip geo block for some reason.
