Sitelock setting may be too high

Postby Charles Steiner » Sat Mar 03, 2018 8:04 pm

I attempted to access joomla.org from a starbucks and was redirected to the page seen in the attached image. Pretty low volume store in a small town I can't imagine that there were any attacks originating from here. But it's possible, I suppose. I'm connecting though a VPN right now.

There are a couple of other posts about this here viewtopic.php?f=213&t=959775
Recently I had trouble connecting to a couple of sites (not joomla) and had to turn my VPN off to access them. Its not a joomla problem, but would appear to be a sitelock issue.

SiteLock blocks me on joomla.org

Postby Runner64 » Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:11 am

Why do Sitelock block me? I cannot reach the home page or many other submenus.
What can I do solve this problem?

Complain to sitelock, this is not a joomla issue.

Hi @runner64,

Are you saying that you're trying to access the content here on Joomla.org and you're seeing a SiteLock block message? If so, can you share a screenshot or text of the message you're seeing?

It is a joomla issue as joomla.org is "protected" by sitelock

Yes, but not all menus. Suddenly it works again, so for now it is OK and I don´t know why.

If you are on a dynamic IP, then try turning off your Internet modem and turning it back on, and, then see if your IP changes, and if you can access the website.

I think the whole blocking thing is done automatically, perhaps because the IP that is currently assigned to you has a bad reputation.
