Author: D.Armstrong   (15 May 12 12:51pm)
Hi

i installed http:bl on a cpanel server, my diagnostic page looks ok:

http://67.23.13.121/httpbl_diagnostics/

but the logs are empty after several days, how can i know it is really blocking bots?


Thanks

Did you add the load_module directive and the rule sets to your apache conf?

of course, this is what i added to apache:

LoadModule httpbl_module modules/mod_httpbl.so

<IfModule mod_httpbl.c>
HTTPBLRBLEnabled On
HTTPBLLogDir /var/log/httpbl/
HTTPBLAccessKey xxx-my-key--xxxxx
</IfModule>


should i do something else?

Thanks a lot

You need to set the directives on how you want http:BL to behave.

I just uploaded http://www.projecthoneypot.org/mod_httpbl.pdf that outlines the different directive options.

Let me know if I can help.

Hi E.Langheinrich

Thanks a lot for your help, following the pdf I changed my settings to:

------
LoadModule httpbl_module modules/mod_httpbl.so

<IfModule mod_httpbl.c>
HTTPBLRBLEnabled On
HTTPBLLogDir /var/log/httpbl/
HTTPBLAccessKey scqlctfjbuos
HTTPBLDefaultAction allow
# allow all search engines
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 255:0-255:0-255:0 allow
# deny any other listed IPs with any "score" that have been active in the last 30 days
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 255:0-30:0-255:255 deny
</IfModule>
---------

Now, how can I see the bots blocked by the module? does it create another log file?


Thank you!

Same question... How could we test if the system is really working ?

You can get a lot more information on what mod_httpbl is doing by increasing the verbosity of your apache logs.
