Proxy on openSUSE Edit

Hi. If you are the same user as https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=User:Cboltz&oldid=81217 , have you considered enabling Manual:$wgUsePrivateIPs and Manual:$wgApplyIpBlocksToXff? A proxy should be properly configured. Also, it appears that the wiki is lacking minimal antispam measures, such as QuestyCaptcha.

Please let me know if there are places where you expected these MediaWiki configuration basics to be covered and didn't find them. Nemo 08:31, 22 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yes, I'm Cboltz also on the openSUSE wiki ;-)
I'm still fighting with the server admins to get the Nuke and AbuseFilter extension installed ;-) When that is finally done, I'll see if we need more spam protection and also try to get the proxy config right. Thanks for your pointers! --Cboltz (talk) 22:51, 23 March 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
