I could compile and install the http:bl module in one of my cpanel servers.
if i run "httpd -M" i can see the module is effectively loaded by apache.
I also included the next configuration:
LoadModule httpbl_module modules/mod_httpbl.so
# Serve all search engines
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 255:0-255:0-255:0 allow
# Deny any requests originating from IPs known to be suspicious or offensive.
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 255:0-255:0-255:255 deny
# Deny known exploiters (8) from using HTTP requests(4), and POST requests(2)
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 4:0-255:0-255:8 deny
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 2:0-255:0-255:8 deny
# Deny comment spammers(4) from submitting POST(2) and HTTP Requests(4)
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 4:0-255:0-255:4 deny
HTTPBLRBLReqHandler 2:0-255:0-255:4 deny
Unfortunately the module does nothing. Very often I find requests from known spammers in the apache's logs.
in the log folder /var/log/httpbl/ there is only 1 empty file named httpbl_diagnostics_test.txt
Any idea about why the module does not work?
Thanks in advance for any help
