Wrong IP Error

#1 Postby joebloggs » Jun 11, 2012 2:06 pm

After a lot of emails from people i am testing and getting this error myself..

What causes this, i have a static ip and was working before??

Nginx mod installed how to fix this asap??

I have read all the threads, and says have to contact admin. They are not there today so what can be done, does any one have a guide how to fix this today?

Why does this happen anyway , is it some bug that can be fixed?

This file download.pm

is it on the main webserver or else on all of the file servers?

thanks

you must have had a traffic increase from asian countries, where they have dynamic ips

hey, we did the adjustment you said and it worked fine :)
thanks,

Actually no, most of the wrong ip errors from euro , uk and USA.

Not sure why it just started happening. We allow all now and just cut it down to 1hour instead of 8 the availability.

thanks :)

OK, after a while that was not a good solution for us, it created a huge cpu overload. We put that line of code back how it was and cpu went straight down again.


So

1. why do people that could log in okay fine, then suddenly get a wrong ip message even when on static ip?

2. why does the issue seem to be growing, more persons effected each day.

3. Is there some kind of ip blacklist that nginx creates? if so where is it?

4 Even my own ip at the office is now getting a wrong ip error and it was working fine for about 2 months??

why does the script suddenly do this? and how to get my ip off of the blacklist or whatever is stopping it working??

this is a serious problem, premium users dont like being told wrong ip when they want their files

are you sure its cpu load ? and not disk load

if its cpu load, then you are using a very old hardware because nginx doesnt use much cpu ; or you could be running on apache and not nginx

Hello,

No the hardware is very good twin ssd , quadcore and 24 gig of ram.

Usually the site only uses about 4-8% of cpu, but the moment we comment out that line in the guide. CPU goes to 80% and 100% is making fs.cgi destroy the mysql db and putting huge load on the server.

Removing that line is not an option for us, we don't know why it would do this or why it would work for others.

thanks :)

right now we are still looking for a solution to the wrong ip problem we have, it seems to be growing daily as if more ips are being turned away daily for some reason.

actually i just re read what you said, and i want to talk about that.

we have the nginx mods on all servers.

however does the main webserver have nginx on it??

If so it is not in the same place this it is on the fileservers?

that line has no relationship to fs.cgi , that line just checks downloaders ip & does nothing else

only fileservers need to have nginx
