Things don't happen out of the blue, so you need to check what has changed, or what you've changed, so now suddenly the user cannot access the area.

You might also repair the database, in case something got corrupted, and empty the sessions table.

there is a file called badipXXX in your directory:

xoops_lib/modules/protector/configs

You'll need to modify it.

If you cannot modify it, just delete it, but you'll lose all the other bad IP that you've added to Protector, and they will have access again to your Website.

2) In the Profile module, go to the Basic step:

modules/profile/admin/step.php?id=1

and set the "Save after stop" to "No"

3) go to the Protector module in Admin, go to Preferences, and then at the bottom, at this option:

Quote:
Stop Forum Spam
Checks POST data against spammers registered on www.stopforumspam.com database. Requires php CURL lib

set it to "Ban the IP (no limit)"


I've reversed the settings but new users still can't register

not sure how to repair the database or clear session tables in 2.4.5

Re: Problem with new user registration

Check to make sure your anonymous user permissions allow them to access registration. A user that is currently not registered would be considered to be anonymous and thus the permissions related to the anonymous group would apply. I suspect you probably recently went through and "updated" your anonymous user permissions at some point recently and accidentally modified this permission.
