Can bots bypass maintenance mode?
Posted 5 months ago
Hi I put my site here in maintenance mode because of a bot problem. I have many members with multiple ips and one of them has 100 ips now. I'm using faucet in a box r98 ultimate script. In htaccess, I only allow my ip to access site but I see that users are still claiming when I checked stats and one of them is the user with 100 ips. I had to put all my api access offline. How are these users doing this?. Thanks

Hi Not in maintenance mode anymore but faucets are still disabled. I just saw in stats that a user in ETH faucet had 163 ips :(. I want to cry. These stats only shows the last 30 days so it's scary. Later I plan to make shortlinks not an option to help with bot problem or at least slow down bots. 1 minute faucets might be 5 minute faucets. I got rid of the first BTC faucet and put the second BTC faucet in it's folder instead because it has more users (I hope most of them are not bots :() so http://adjade.com/BTC2/ is now http://adjade.com/BTC/. I did this because of bot problem. Easier for me to manage 3 faucets.

are you sure he is a bot? if the user has referrals his referrals ip also added to his ip. example from my faucet: https://faucethub.io/balance/TEDppegp72bPRMuq7Sqfe69zSe64ssEFgc https://imgur.com/a/K0AjPvq

... Maybe try to set htaacess to independent maintenance index page ? ... Hi, thanks for your reply. I use the rewriterule code that has R=503 to go offline and that's suppose to be a strong one. but your way which is a redirection sounds really good. im starting to think that my maintenance mode only takes effect when page reloads?

I took off all of the addresses i banned from all my faucets. Thank you so much. I feel so bad for this mistake.
