Introduced in version:1.16.0 (r60506)

Allowed values:(array of strings or arrays) (1.19+)
(array of strings) (1.16-1.18)

DetailsEdit

Sets a list of DNS blacklists to use, if $wgEnableDnsBlacklist is set to true. This replaced $wgSorbsUrl .

Changes in 1.19Edit

Array values can either be a string containing the URL of the DNS blacklist, or an array containing the URL of the blacklist and an associated "key" should the blacklist require one.

Example
$wgDnsBlacklistUrls = array(
    'http.dnsbl.sorbs.net.', # String containing URL
    array( 'dnsbl.httpbl.net.', 'mykey' ), # Array with URL and key, for services that require a key
    array( 'dnsbl.tornevall.org.' )  # Array with just URL. While this works, it is recommended that you just use a string as shown above
);
or
$wgDnsBlacklistUrls = array( 'xbl.spamhaus.org.', 'dnsbl.tornevall.org.', 'spam.dnsbl.sorbs.net.', 'rbl.dnsbl.im.', 'noptr.spamrats.com.', 'all.s5h.net.', 'z.mailspike.net.' );

You can find Spam databases on https://www.dnsbl.info/ or others similar websites.

You should end the domain name with a "." to avoid searching your eventual domain search suffixes.

Trigger DNSBL on specific actionsEdit

$wgDnsBlacklistUrls only apply on account creation by default. To apply it on others actions like edits set in LocalSettings.php

$wgDnsBlacklistUrls['edit']          = true;
