OT: Caevan is locked out

Here's a weird one, folks . . .

 

Caevan needs some tech assistance logging back onto the Forums. He started seeing some oddball security message when he tries to log onto the Forums, "Access Denied - Sucuri Website Firewall" "If you are the site owner (or you manage this site), please whitelist your IP or if you think this block is an error please open a support ticket . . ." etc.. The "open a support ticket" phrase is apparently another active link, if you click on it.

 

As you might imagine, Caevan is reluctant to "open a support ticket . . ." with what may be a hacked site or a scam? If anyone can help, or is familiar with this roadblock, you can shred that info here, or send me a PM, or something. If you're in touch with Caevan on FB, you can still check in with him there, this seems to be an issue that's specific to the Forum log-on. He can still see the Forums, he just can't get in.

 

Thanks all . . .

Weird...

 

Reif got in touch with me a few days ago while I was on vacation and told me that there were some folks with login problems. I told Jim Quinn (our webmaster) and he said he was on it.

 

Sorry to hear it's still an issue - I'll follow up right away.

Thanks for jumping on this Dave! It could also be a security issue with Caevan's computer automatic security upgrades? I have never had a real problem signing on but there have been times when this site is not responding now and then. My search bar has a "Not secure" warning site message on it ever since we changed to this newer Music Player Network. For security purposes, it may be worthwhile to have the webmaster look into how the site can be upgraded for it's web security settings. Thanks... :cool:

 

ps. We've got to get Caevan back on somehow! Sending him a shout out! :wave:

Take care, Larryz

Oddly, it seems that I can now post anywhere here that I please- except in reply to my own "A capo particularly excellent for bendy Blues and Rock"-thread... ?

 

There, and there alone, I continue to get blocked by the same Sucuri Firewall error-message, and the link provided therein for opening a "ticket" to resolve the issue leads to a blank page...

Ask yourself- What Would Ren and Stimpy Do?

It took a chunk of my life to get here and I am still not sure where "here" is.

The Sucuri firewall is legit. It is safe to open a ticket. I sent an email to Caevan.

In the future, please report technical issues in the Members Help Desk. I get email notification whenever someone posts to that forum.

 

My apologies, I'll keep that in mind in case of future problems.

But I digress. ;)

Here's the story on Sucuri: if we change the musicplayer.com URL to https, we'll immediately lose the links to 20+ years of videos - which we'd prefer not to do - so we hired the Sucuri folks to help ward off pests. They actually do a pretty great job of it... :cop::cool:

 

Brother Jim has been MPN's webmaster since he built it a few decades ago, and I have the keys to the joint. If there's anything either of us can do to help any of y'all at any time, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
