  • Hello,

    when I configure the ‘Enable HackRepair.com’s blacklist feature’ setting,it blocks the request coming from outside server.if I disabled this setting then what is the security risk ? If I want to keep this setting then what will be the solution to allow access to request that coming from outside ? I want to keep both.

    regards,
    thank you

  • Sound like something in your .htaccess is conflicting with the HackRepair.com’s blacklist feature. If this happening, it’s best to not enable that automated feature.

    If you wish to install the bad bot settings, you may instead manually add the blocking options by copying the code direct from the bad bot list source. See the source list at:

    I tried to add manually bad bot settings.I add the code from the bad bot list in the .htaccess file.but it does not make any difference.it also block the request coming from outside server.

    ok i got the solution.’RewriteRule ^.* – [F,L]’ line causing the problem.I want to know if i remove this line from the .htaccess file.then is there any security risk ?
