User blocked: Your user account or IP address have been blocked by SORBS DNSBL;
IP is listed as an SORBS DNSBL open proxy. You may contact SORBS DNSBL or one of
the other administrators... your IP address is 66.102.74.xxx...
Server configuration is:
MW1.9-svn (current as of yesterday), recently upgraded from MW1.8alpha
one standalone dedicated server, Fedora5, using both memcached and squid on
same localhost (127.0.0.1)
Apache's bound to 127.0.0.1:80, Squid is bound to :80 on one of the
datacentre's external static IP's
So, enable SORBS on MW1.9 and suddenly it won't let me edit any page from my
dynamic IP address.
This is happening only on wikis that I've upgraded to MW1.9alpha and then only
if I try to edit any page on these sites from a dynamic IP connection (PPPoE in
my case). It broke as soon as I upgraded to 1.9
If I edit by running lynx on a shell account on the server, everything works
fine and any edit appears in recentchanges as the server's external static IP.
It just doesn't want to let me edit from a dynamic IP.
Turning off $wgEnableSorbs makes the error go away, evidently.
I'd tried looking up my own address on SORBS' site and it reports the block as a
dynamic IP range (ADSL or dialup) but not as anything else particularly nasty.
And no, I'm not seeing this on MW1.8, just on the new upgrade.
