Since forums acp is broken again and nobody wants to waste time on it (again) invision support needs ftp/ftps access to forums.
I suggest to setup a small vsftpd or proftpd and limit access to port 21 to the mentioned 220.127.116.11 ip address.
Working on sftp account
account created.. creds sent to Werner and Igor via forum
let me know when they’re done and i’ll deactivate the account.
I wanted it to be sftp only, but i forgot what a PITA it is to do that
Since we pay for support I may go ahead and do support inquires more frequently if something does not work as expected or supposed so it might be useful to have a more permanent access.
As mentioned this can fairly easy be restricted and the data is stored - as the claim - securely at Invision.
Nevertheless it might be a good idea to implement - if not existing already - a daily backup of both the forums data and database. But that is a different task.
