Imagine you're dumb enough to make Protector ban from your own site.
These things happens.
Trick 1: Try to get a new IP. Switch off/on your cable modem/ADSL router, whatever you have, restart computer.
GIJOE's Fastest Cache Hack (FCH) provides a much better and faster way of caching Xoops contents. It is per page per module. If you were to modify the templates of a particular module, you would have to wait for the cached contents to expire to get the "new look" of the previously cached contents.
A fast way to expire the cached contents is to delete all the files in XOOPS_TRUST_PATH/fullcache. If .htaccess (usually hidden) shows, make sure you do not delete it.
XOOPS_TRUST_PATH was introduced by GIJOE (based on minahitos idea as GIJOE credited). The idea and/or concept of XOOPS_TRUST_PATH is to secure a Xoops module by moving all of the modules PHP files out of web root or DOCUMENT_ROOT. more...
One of the most STUPID and annoying creations by Mozilla/Firefox is prefetching. IMHO, one day because of this idiotic feature, Firefox may end up being banned by most webmasters. Unless, M$ stupid enough to follow the mistakes of Mozilla.
A browser (firefox) with prefetching option ON or with Goolge accelerator/prefetcher will download every links founded on your site. It behaves exactly like a bad/rogue crawler trying to crawl every links of your site.
