  1. You may edit log-in class code to first check if there is other account in session table with the same ip , then deny access if so . But i think users can use proxy to provide fake ip/location/useragent to bypass ip checks .
  2. You can use something like this : server { listen 80; server_name; access_log logs/example.com_access.log; error_log logs/example.com_error.log; root /home/forums; index index.php; location / { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; } location ~ \.php$ { try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php; fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock; fastcgi_index index.php; fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME $document_root$fastcgi_script_name; include fastcgi_params; } } Of course you will have to change it to suit your needs and may be add more security/performance related settings . Your issue "nginx start downloading your page (php file)" is due to php location not set or wrong configuration for : fastcgi_pass unix:/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
  3. If you use cloudflare then you must enable "Trust IP addresses provided by proxies" , there is no security risk doing this since you're behind cloudflare .
  4. Check what CAPTCHA Type you have set in ACP , and also if keys are correct . This is one of available options :
  5. Purpose of trying those settings is just to find out what is causing that issue , totally agree with your security reasons . This is a good point , else , system will use wrong ip for members .
  6. There is a setting related to error you get . Go to Advanced Configuration > Server Environnement TAB > then in the IP VALIDATION section there is some settings you can change : Trust IP addresses provided by proxies. Check IP address when validating session I suspect the last one to be your issue . I hope you solve this .
  7. Your problem is maybe related to storage configuration that is different from your old path . Go to ACP > Files > Storage Settings > Configurations TAB > edit your current storage method to suit your new settings . While you're there you can also try to enable cusom upload url ( .
  8. It's not that hard to upgrade your forum ( you have only a few topics ) , just copy new files over old one then go to /admin/upgrade/ and follow instructions . You can do that first in some subdomain to test , then if all was good , do the same on main domain .
  9. Just be sure it is added to startup , oor you will have problems if server restarted for any reason .
  10. Maybe checking session.save_handler & session.save_path & session.gc_maxlifetime in php.ini. Using something like memcache or redis to handle sessions will solve this issue and provide more performance ..
