I am just installing a php honeypot script and when I go to the honeypot.php I get the error saying that outbound connections may be disabled.
I have a dedicated server and am not sure where to look to allow the connection.
I have cPanel and WHM and CSF firewall installed. I checked the firewall settings for outgoing TCP connections and the http port 80 is listed as allowed.
I do have some disabled php functions that are
ni_set,exec,passthru,shell_exec,system,proc_open,popen,curl_exec,curl_multi_exec,parse_ini_file,show_source, phpinfo,popen, proc_open,allow_url_fopen,apache_get_modules,apache_get_version,apache_getenv,apache_note,apache_setenv,disk_free_space,diskfreespace,dl,highlight_file,ini_alter,ini_restore,openlog,proc_nice,symlink,fsockopen
Are any of them required to connect? If not do you have any suggestions how I can allow the connection? I do not have a support option for the server, so there is no one to contact, although I have posted on a linux forum, but hoping someone here may know as no replies as of yet there.
