comment Denyhosts: Should I ever clear the denied IP hosts file?
Any suggestions for what should I look into to set up deny.hosts rotation?

comment Denyhosts: Should I ever clear the denied IP hosts file?
Hmmm, right, I guess the ideal would be to turn on a rotation so that it cleans itself periodically. I'm not using centralized reporting or email notification within denyhosts per se, though I do receive logs of ips that get denied via logwatch emails.

Ok, it seems to even view, you need X, so evidently that is the symbolic permission to add. What should I look into for apache to prevent execution within a directory?

Ok, so apache being able to write everything in these image directories would be set via .htaccess or apache config somewhere, but what kind of directive should I be looking for to prevent interpretation as executable by apache for those folders? I'm also just trying (for my own understanding) to translate the permissions 600 for files and 700 for subdirectories into symbolic permissions. I believe that would be chmod u+rw,go-rwx for files, and chmod u+rwZ,go-rwx for directories (with the Z standing for I am not sure what, X? or s? Not sure of the symbolic rep. of direct. scan.

comment Increase php session time via .htaccess not working
Thank you for this post, I wasn't aware that my apache config values were being completely ignored, only that my sessions were timing out quickly, until I checked my phpinfo() directly. As a result, I've given up on using the apache site setup, which apparently may not use php_value at all (unlike a .htaccess?), and just went with editing the php.ini directly.

comment Enable blowfish-based hash support for crypt
Hmmm, after making those changes, CRYPT_BLOWFISH still doesn't equal 1, for some reason.

I disagree with giving anything to this clearly unsecure individual.
