here i will collect all the info about fudforum i have/will find out, mostly how to adapt the software to the specific requirements of hosting in the darknets, or about my installation.

starting with the first little hack, which prevents users of posting their own session token when they post links from this forum. given the fact that we only work with url sessions now, this could attackers enable to take over the account (if the session should still be open at the point in time). a little regex prevents this, to be inserted in post.php, line 826 at the start of the function apply_custom_replace:

return preg_replace("/&S=(\w{32})/", "&S=replaced.session.token.for.opsec", $text);

this will shortcircuit the function to do only one replacement, which replaces the session token with a string.

cheers

Good idea. At some point we should collect the previous changes we made (nntp.inc, etc) and put it all in one place.

We have made a few small changes to several files at this point (also, I've written two plugins). I'll collect my stuff next week and we can place this all somewhere.

BTW, nice work on your progress with the sessions!

yeah, thanks. it's a load of my mind. and it makes ff much more usable and secure (for the server admin, anyway).

what plugins have you written for ff ? do you the auth and the spam killer ?

and another quick'n'dirty one: the script below (hacked from pieces of admforum.php and admnntp.php) reads from a file called groups_to_create.txt in webroot/adm/, and creates all the forums listed in that file, plus the update rule to sync over nntp. it's very raw yet, and throws an exception for the display of the results, but the creation as such works.

Looks good. This will really help in building ff site, as it takes a
long time to create and configure a lot of groups at once. (It's really
boring!)

Thanks for this!

I can't find anywhere in that loop that it breaks out for any reason (only 'continue', which is good). My nntp.php seems a little different than yours, the line is 134 in mine.

Is it crashing execution of the file itself?

Is it crashing execution of the file itself?

it is this topic here: http://x5qrtsbiebrxj65t.onion/index.php?t=msg&th=46384&goto=63843&S=replaced.session.token.for.opsec#msg_63843

There is a call from nntp.php to a function, trying to determine if the message is a first in the thread or not. The sql statement in that function crashes if a message has certain characters (because this changes implicitly the encoding, or so it seems). When that function crahes, nntp.php stops to import that group, and goes to the next one.

And another one: move the webroot of Fudforum to a different location.

This is mostly a note to myself, as I think I am the only one still using this :).

So, to move the webroot of Fudforum:

# cp -rv /your/forum/dir /your/new/forum/dir
# cp -rv /your/data/dir /your/new/data/dir
# chown -R www-data.www-data /your/new/forum/dir
# chown -R www-data.www-data /your/new/data/dir
# mv /your/forum/dir /your/forum/dir_backup
# mv /your/data/dir /your/data/dir_backup
# ln -s /your/new/forum/dir /your/forum/dir
# ln -s /your/new/data/dir /your/data/dir
# nano /your/new/data/dir/include/GLOBALS.php
(here you have to adapt the paths so that they point to the new absolute paths, php seems not to follow symlinks)
(make some testing)
# rm -rf /your/forum/dir_backup
# rm -rf /your/data/dir_backup

cheers

and btw, I hope this has fixed all this annoying 503s, they should have been because of low disk space.

Always a good idea to keep a log somewhere. Why not here :) (I do that also).

So, to move the webroot of Fudforum:

# cp -rv /your/forum/dir /your/new/forum/dir
# cp -rv /your/data/dir /your/new/data/dir
# chown -R www-data.www-data /your/new/forum/dir
# chown -R www-data.www-data /your/new/data/dir
# mv /your/forum/dir /your/forum/dir_backup
# mv /your/data/dir /your/data/dir_backup
# ln -s /your/new/forum/dir /your/forum/dir
# ln -s /your/new/data/dir /your/data/dir
# nano /your/new/data/dir/include/GLOBALS.php
(here you have to adapt the paths so that they point to the new absolute paths, php seems not to follow symlinks)

Interesting. Symlinks for files, or directories? rslight has symlinked files without trouble, but haven't done so with directories.

(make some testing)

Good idea!

# rm -rf /your/forum/dir_backup
# rm -rf /your/data/dir_backup

Always scary :)

Damn non-infinite disks! I hate those :)

def3 really looks good. As you know, some of the css of rslight is copying some of the colour scheme of def3 because I like it.

On another ff note, I mentioned a while back the size of my ff database and how large it was. I was surprised then when I deleted ff from that server, the freed disk space was double the database size. The database was around 12G and once ff was completely deleted, it freed 24G of space. Not sure why that is as I really doubt it duplicates the entire database.

The rslight database for the same groups as ff had is currently 4.3G

Interesting. Symlinks for files, or directories? rslight has symlinked files without trouble, but haven't done so with directories.

Wasn't sure that it would work, but lighttpd makes no trouble :-) . I will still change back to nginx soon, i think. The migration of the webroot solved almost all 503 errors, but it still happens from time to time. i think nginx is a little better in performance.

 # rm -rf /your/forum/dir_backup
 # rm -rf /your/data/dir_backup

Oh yes. Many hours spent ....nuff said

yeah, it is just a very nice color scheme (which I have not done, as you know. Probs go to the locals css genius, wonder if he's still around, btw).

On another ff note, I mentioned a while back the size of my ff database and how large it was. I was surprised then when I deleted ff from that server, the freed disk space was double the database size. The database was around 12G and once ff was completely >deleted, it freed 24G of space. Not sure why that is as I really doubt it duplicates the entire database.

Thats funny. Would be really interesting to learn why this was the case. My sql files take some 1,9 GB for the whole ff install, but then I don't store the messages in the db, but as plain files.

The rslight database for the same groups as ff had is currently 4.3G

ff is a ressource hog for sure. if def3 wasn't the most used of my three nodes (by far), i would have dumped ff by now. but the users (read: lurkers) seem to like it better than bbs or vichan. or maybe the other addresses are just not as well known as def3.

cheers

trw

PS: just as I wanted to post this on def3: guess what: 503 again, lol. ok, nginx it is.

A while back I think I posted a few settings for nginx that deals with this issue. Seems nginx gives php a very short time to respond, and sends a 503 if php doesn't finish in time. I'm guessing lighttpd may have similar settings, but I don't know for sure.

That was my thinking also before dropping ff in clearnet. Many (most?) users find it familiar, similar to other forum software, and they understand it quickly.

I found the thread (n def3 :-)), have to play around a little. Thanks for the hint,
