rdns and php
« on: May 21, 2024, 05:03:11 PM »
While getting to grips with sme10.1 i noticed some differnet behaviour on the server.
We have a site that shows online users etc to admin.
This has a setting marked
Quote
IP to Host Conversion Status
this was disabled on old sme9 and is on this site however it is showing dns entries on some users not IP's
I dont need to know this informmation and am advised to diable for first page view speed etc.


As its disabled in the php application itself i assume its being generated anyway.
so
Am i wrong about this?
can i turn it off?

Thanks

James

Sounds like a function of the web application you are using rather than Koozali SME.

Check with the application eg Wordpress or whatever (which you haven't told us about so hard to know what to suggest specifically)
...
1. Read the Manual
2. Read the Wiki
3. Don't ask for support on Unsupported versions of software
4. I have a job, wife, and kids and do this in my spare time. If you want something fixed, please help.

Sorry no its zencart
It maybe a function of the application then i will investigate that. Its an option that is disabled in the config though.

here is an example of the output

Code: [Select]
Session ID: 0a7289axxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx6e202f85
Host: cpxxxxxxxxxxxxxx-basfxx-2-0-custxxx.xx-x.cable.xxxxxxx.net
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10_15_7) AppleWebKit/605.1.15 (KHTML, like Gecko) Version/17.4.1 Safari/605.1.15

xxxx added to hide

It's a Zencart setting essentially. Nothing to do with Koozali.

Yes, you can disable it if you want - depends on how powerful your server is and number of visitors. Monitor your server load.

Note yes, your server logs visitors via the Apache logs, but ZenCart does it's own thing too. And this is a ZenCart issue.
