Hi,

Im running the new version of Sentinel on my site and was wondering what are the best settings to use on Sentinel in the Admin panel?

PS - The 2 files .htaccess & .staccess do they both need to be set to 666?

hi DaveTomneyUK,

your talking about personal preferences.
its whatever you like.
But for example...

Code:


ADMIN Blocker Settings
AUTHOR Blocker Settings
CLIKE Blocker Settings
UNION Blocker Settings
Filters Blocker Settings
Harvester Blocker Settings
Referer Blocker Settings



personaly i have them set to permanent,block,mail.
and believe me it trashes every idiot and does a great job..

but now it gets realy tricky..

these settings.....

Code:


Scripting Blocker Settings
Request Method Blocker Settings
String Blocker Settings


thats realy sensitive,so watchout with the settings.
cause when you have a very active site with a lot of stuff....
then a lot of people can get kicked everytime.
as i said...it can...but depends on how you set it.

Okay, so Google is being blocked from "harvesting" the news from my site, to make it available in the news section on google.

Should I quit blocking harvester programs?

What are harvester programs? What do they do?

Thanks.

Harvesters harvest e-mail address and other information for their use. One of the last things you want (I hope) is for someone to harvest the e-mail addresses of your users. This is really one that should be activated, in my opinion!

The safest I think is to add the google IPs to the protected list. This eliminates the issue.
