Question about access to files Reply to topic


I see in the log of IP's that google has bin looking around my site, very cool. But I alsonsee that it has been in some admin files. Does this mean that the bot has been able to see (access) these file? I mean some of them are block delete pages from my admin. I'm not sure how to read the info that the IP tracker is giving me. I'm a little scared.... Shocked

Check the images below they are from the IP Tracker log..

The first point is that Dragonfly won't let anything into your admin files unless they/it has admin permission.

However, what is happening is that Google is indexing your IP Tracker files - whilst this is a positive as it is feeding on "dynamic" content, you may prefer that your admin links are not splattered all over the net.

I think I have a simple fix for your existing database with a couple of small changes - adding an extra variable, $exclude_admin, to the ipconfig.php file, and an extra filter in the sql queries in index.php

Attached is the updated files - $exclude_admin is set to 1 to prevent anyone except admin seeing admin links.

correct - you should now find only admin can see admin links if $exclude_admin is set to 1 Smile
