Aloha woolly bugger,

Please give more detailed information on this install. No one has reported this on recent installs and there are a few.

1 - What version number of BotBanish are you using?
2 - I imagine you are using the SMF version?
3 - What is the domain name you are installing onto?
4 - Where did you get the BotBanish MOD you are trying to install?

I just downloaded version 3.4.01 from the SMF MOD site and there are no errors in the install (see attached image).
Any information that can help would be useful.

Thanks woolly bugger,

The error has been corrected in version 2.1 RC2. It was a typo in the package-info.xml file that was not updated to the new file naming convention.
I uploaded the correction - BotBanish 3.4.02
Thanks for reporting this oversight.

Hello I installed a fresh smf forum, first thing I did was install botbanish, I am having the error 500 and it has happen so far 3 times,  it block all the domain and subdomains not just the forum,  this is what I am using:

SMF 2.1 RC2
BotBanish 3.4.02 downloaded from this site, also I got a warning from sfm that there was and update on hxxp:botbanish.com/ [nonactive] but I got the same files I dunno if there are changes (also at the time I am posting this, that site is also giving me the error 500)
Apache Version    2.4.41
PHP Version    7.2.24
MySQL Version    5.6.45
OS Linux

 first time I deleted everything (even smf) since I did not know what was the problem and after re installation I used the files from botbanish.com so I am sure I have the official and last version. For the second time is when I noticed this error happens when botbanish stops a force brute attack and then edits my htaccess file to block and IP this is the report from SMF error log:

Code: [Select]
Type of error: botbanish
BotBanishClient: A Brute Force Registration Attack Attempt Stopped - mysite.com
A BOT/USER is attacking the system. It has been terminated
IP Address: 158.69.121.179
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; Win64; x64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/66.0.3359.170 Safari/537.36 OPR/53.0.2907.106
BotBanish Client 3.4.01 (SMF) https://mysite.com/forum/index.php?action=login2

Noticed that SMF error report says that the version is 3.4.01 but as I said I installed the very last one and I repeat is a fresh forum I did not have previous installations, and to be able to unblock my site I edited htaccess and deleted this lines so the site works again :

Code: [Select]
# * * * * * BotBanish IP Start * * * * *
<Files>
<RequireAll>
Require all granted
Require not ip 158.69.121.179
</RequireAll>
</Files>
# * * * * * BotBanish IP End * * * * *

But this solution I think is not the appropriate one because it happened again when I got another bot attack hours later, SMF reported the same error just with a different IP address.

Also I have another error that SMF log report  but I am not sure if they are related:
Code: [Select]
Type of error: General
8192: Function create_function() is deprecated https://mysite.com/forum/index.php?action=botbanish;area=viewblacklistips
/home/mysite/public_html/forum/Sources/BotBanish_BlackWhiteLists_Manage.php (Line 692)


I am bit of stuck here, thanks.

The <Files> statement should be <Files *>, This has been changed.

Also BotBanish 3.4.02 was not PHP 7.x compatible (create_function()). The update 3.4.03 is now PHP 7.x compatible.

I just made a correction and uploaded it. This should solve those issues.

A fresh install is never required. a simple change in the .htaccess file will get the board back up and running. There are many boards running BotBanish an of course we can't anticipate all the nuances of the .htaccess files users have. All of our boards are running BotBanish which includes our support board which can give you all the assistance that you need.

BTW: BotBanish ALWAYS creates a backup .htaccess file for this very reason. All it would take is to make the backup file the current one to get the site backup and running.

Without stating the version how can it be ascertained what the "latest version" is? People always say the latest version and most of the time it is not... Please state the file name of the MOD you are installing.
