Xortify 2.5.1

Xortify is a network security drone that uses Web 2.0 techniques to link between your XOOPS installs and other via a Server Cloud. This will prevent security intrusions to your xoops with accurate deceptive notation of the intruder and prevent any farmed attacks. It is an accessory and required Protector to be installed an running to be part of the hookup. Otherwise it will run without protector just make sure you deselect protector as a provider.

A cloud computing process is one which staggers multiple networks sometime and mainly unknown to the webmaster into a network or cloud of data. In this example it is IP and Netaddy names to control access lists.

Xortify is a cloud solution to protectors Bad IPs, if someone attempts to hack your site and becomes a bad IP it will then send the IP to the Ban Cloud on Xortify.com and its paired cloud Xortify.chronolabs.coop. It will also poll the server to make sure it has the latest ban list so your website will be aware of malusers before they attack through farming IP from services like Google or bing.

Re: Xortify 2.5.1 & Spiders 2.7.1 - Cloud Security for XOOPS & Clones

I downloaded xoops2.4_mod_xortify_2.25_wishcraft.zip from the sourceforge repository

Doesn't work for me and I'm using xoops 2.4.5.

When you're in the module list and click on the icon it goes to the control panel home, and has the xortify menu under the modules. Preferences, ban list, signup

Sign up goes to a screen outside the xoops frame, which shows the preferences link as well as the words ban list, and signup. but nothing else

I went to xortify.com to try to signup so I could get a user name and password to put in xortify preferences, and the submit button doesn't work on the registration screen. I suspect it's because I don't have a referree but that is not noted as a required option in the registration.

so, can someone point me to a version that works on 2.4.5?

so what exactly do we have to do? I just downloaded it from the link given above and there are no doc files or install instructions.

Also, the sign up for xhortfy tab works in Spiders, but after you add all the date for registration, there's no button? Sign up, register or anything else

Re: Xortify 2.5.1 & Spiders 2.7.1 - Cloud Security for XOOPS & Clones

HI cefry, download the 2.5 version it will also run on 2.4, they are backward compatible. You can get it from http://xortify.chronolabs.coop I suggest you use CURL Serialisation for the protocol of communication to the cloud.

Re: Xortify 2.5.1 & Spiders 2.7.1 - Cloud Security for XOOPS & Clones

ok, i downloaded the current releases from your link and installed them on a xoops 2.4.5 site

1) I installed the module

2) i made the changes to mainfile.php
Quote:

@include( XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/modules/xortify/include/pre.loader.mainfile.php' );
if (!isset($xoopsOption["nocommon"]) && XOOPS_ROOT_PATH != "") {
include XOOPS_ROOT_PATH."/include/common.php";
}
@include( XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/modules/xortify/include/post.loader.mainfile.php' );


3) I made the changes to header.php
Quote:

$xoTheme =& $xoopsThemeFactory->createInstance(array('contentTemplate' => @$xoopsOption['template_main']));
$xoopsTpl =& $xoTheme->template;
@include( XOOPS_ROOT_PATH.'/modules/xortify/include/post.add.meta.php' );


clicking on the xortify icon in the modules list, i get this

you will notice this is the Control Panel Home screen, and you will notice the Protector icon has disappeared

Clicking on the xortify "Sign Up" tab I get this

Resized Image


i restored the backups of mainfile.php and header.php

the Protector icon reappears, but nothing else changed

any suggestions?

Re: Xortify 2.5.1 & Spiders 2.7.1 - Cloud Security for XOOPS & Clones

I get the same problems as chefry with Xortify, same version and also XOOPS 2.5.1. Sadly it seems unusable for me at the moment.

Re: Xortify 2.5.1 & Spiders 2.7.1 - Cloud Security for XOOPS & Clones

OKey when the signup tab is like that, You need to change the Cloud Communication Protocol in the preferences, I suggest you use either cURL Serialisation or cURL XML.

The other thing may be that you cannot communicate with the asia pacific cloud, there is also a european service you can use which means you have to change the URL in the preferences to http://xortify.com from http://xortify.chronolabs.coop with the same paths afterwards.

You may have to fiddle with it, but once the signup form is displaying, and you have signup and you should be running fine.

Okey for starters you don't have to make any changes to the mainfile or header.php in XOOPS 2.4 or XOOPS 2.5 cause these run from a preloader, you only need to make those changes in XOOPS 2.3 and earlier or any XOOPS Clone without preloaders.
