There is literally nothing in the error log or the ban table. I could empty out or whole ban table and you could give it a try.
No other idea... really. Maybe Stop Forum Spam hits you, but your IP is not listed there either.

(Anyone wanna cough up some 10.000-50.000$ for IPB?)


Dropping the ban table did solve the problem, so now we have to track this down.
Meanwhile I restored the bans ofc.

It works now, so thank you for your effort  ;)

The problem began when the forum moved to the new server.
I never had this problem on the old server.

Anyone else getting these? The site been rock solid/super-fast for me all the time.
Please, check the error log in the Admin area when this happens.

Or just notch up the time when it happens and send it to me in PM. I'll try to trace it down.

on it m8

EDIT: This may cause everyone to re-log. But I enabled "database driven session handling". This should fix your issue.
Well, and help others as well. Sorry about the relog people.

PS: Jeps keep me posted!

I was just looking at the admin log. The first error message was reading:
Sorry Dayman, you are banned from using this forum!
This ban is not set to expire.
You may continue to browse the forum as a guest.
I applied a filter to that message and several others appeared with the same IP. I clicked on the IP and it shows that 2 members have connected with this one "jeps, WeniSpite". The latter one is banned.
Also it showed that jeps made a post connected with this IP today, so this IP isn't banned. Couldn't hurt to check though. Shiki I'll pm you the IP.

Also I think the IP logging mechanism is broken, because I can see that the logged IP of my prev post doesn't match my actual IP (which is shown by whatsmyip.org)

Yeah, I found that IP as well. But I didn't see jeps's name there.
Weird.

There is a plugin for Cloudflare, I'll install it. (So we will get to see the real IPs.)

I also think that something got broken when moved to this new server.

I have never done anything to get my user banned, nor has anyone from this IP.
For a short while (when Shiki disabled all security) I was able to login.
I also have a static IP.

I was logged in for a short while, when Shiki had all security diasabled, but when he enabled it again, I got the error again.

So my IP is banned (or what the server think is my IP)

I have found the common IP between jeps and Dayman in the Ban Triggers and I have removed it.
I hope this solves the problem.

PS: Shiki shouldn't we remove all the ban triggers that are based on IPs?

It sort of worked and then didn't work.
When I opened my browser at the forum, I didn't get any errors.
I then browsed to this thread to write a note about your success.
Remembering I had to login to be allowed to write anything, I tried to login and then got the error again.

It looks like the login attempt triggers a ban, and that the ban is done on IP-level?

Yeah, I'll throw them out in a moment. (And install the Cloudflare plugin so we can ban IPs properly.)

ps.: It's not the server (that's great/fast), but Cloudflare.
