Is there a way I can completely remove SENTINEL from my website?

I had managed to fix some long term issues on my website and some how managed to ban myself - so i went into phpmyadmin and i dropped the table nuke_nsnst_blocked_ips ( which i think was the wrong thing to do ).

Ive cleaned htaccess and nuke_nsnst_blocked_ips etc etc I'm at my wits end - I think it will be easier uninstalling SENTINEL and reinstalling it fresh. Advice appreciated. Thank you.

The only way an admin can accidentally ban himself is if you did not run the 'Scan for admins' link and then add yourself as 'protected' but I'm sure you figured that out after reading the instructions Smile

Removing NS is a really, really bad idea!
You could restore the able you dropped from a database back up (you do have a back up right?) or re-run the installer again which should re- install any missing tables.

What you should have done is deleted the rows of data in the table, not the whole table. Also if you had it configured correctly to write blocked IP's to the htaccess file, you may need to remove your IP from that if you find you are still banned.

Try renaming the following folders/files:

/includes/nukesentinel.php
/admin/modules/nukesentinel
/admin/modules/nukesentinel.php
/admin/case/case.nukesentinel.php
/admin/links/links.nukesentinel.php
/blocks/block-Sentinel.php
/blocks/block-Sentinel_Center.php
/blocks/block-Sentinel_Scrolling.php
/blocks/block-Sentinel_Side.php
/language/nukesentinel
/modules/NukeSentinel

There are also a couple of references to nukesentinel.php in mainfile.php but they are called in such a way as to not throw errors; at least that's the plan.

NS v2.6 and possibly earlier versions include a switch in the main configuration screen to set NukeSentinel(tm) Status: to disabled to avoid all the above changes.

But, the best/safest advice is to follow Guardian's instructions Wink

What message do you get when you think you are being banned? Remember not to paste your IP address here.

Not sure if this helps but I kept getting banned and it had to do with uploading via ftp, the files were going to the admin dir, maybe it has something to do with permisions? If you did add any new files to case, links, etc, I just reuploaded everything and it worked fine. Good luck

Pity you did not search the forum for "invalid IP" - the answer to your problem is to get the latest IP2C (IP to Country) data from nukescripts.net
What happens is that periodically some IP blocks/ranges get changed by the people that control IP allocation and it looks like your IP got moved and now Nuke Sentinel cannot determine if you are 'real' or not.

Actually, I have the latest and it will be released with RavenNuke(tm) v2.30.01 and then as a stand alone. If you d/l the latest from nukescripts.net and that doesn't correct your problem, there is also a setting in the rnconfig.php file that you can set to true to bypass the NukeSentinel(tm) Invalid IP Check completely.

In rnconfig.php
FIND
$bypassNukeSentinelInvalidIPCheck = false;

CHANGE TO
$bypassNukeSentinelInvalidIPCheck = true;

That doesn't work in 2.3.$bypassNukeSentinelInvalidIPCheck is broken in 2.30.00.

True, but the fix is in that post so it could be made to work Wink

I assumed that but I didn't pick up on it. My old brain saw "That doesn't work in 2.3" but w/o seeing something like "However there is a fix at ...". So, I thought others might be confused as well. In any event, I think we pretty well covered it Cheers
