  • [Forum] Removing VBSEO

    How to remove the VBSEO from my board. I have requested assistance from VBSEO and there is no response from past 1 week.

    Required to remove the VBSEO and also required to change the htaccess.

    My host informed me that someone is attacking my board and below are their comments:
    Code:
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]The attack on your server is exploiting your php application:[/FONT][/COLOR]
    
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]It appears they were attacking vbseo.php[/FONT][/COLOR]
    
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]This is distinct from a ddos, which is an attempt to disrupt an IP or a server by flooding it with false traffic. We do not provide security to stop application exploits such as this.. Several solutions are available to you:[/FONT][/COLOR]
    
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]1) review the security of your PHP application. Consider updating or installing specific security patches[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]3) disable the application until you can patch or otherwise resolve the exploit[/FONT][/COLOR]
    
    [COLOR=#555555][FONT=Arial]I recommend giving full consideration to the suggestions I have provided you.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    Please help me to remove the vbseo from my board

    Disable the vBSEO product under AdminCP -> Plugins & Products -> Manage Products and then uninstall it. Afterwards remove all files that belong to vBSEO from your server, including the .htaccess file which comes from vBSEO.

        Check the vBSEO file package in order to see which files belong to that product. Also only delete the lines from htaccess which belong to vBSEO, have a look at their original htaccess file for this.

          I haven't done this method, yet. But this was pointed out to me once before: http://www.vbseo.com/blogs/mert-goek...all-vbseo-238/

          Make sure you make a backup everything first!

            Also, once removed make sure you setup your URL's correctly, you can still do mod rewrite etc but will need to enable this in the admincp (and upload the .htaccess file from the vbulletin.zip) via:

            AdminCP > Settings > Options > Friendly URL's
            Top option: URL Type set to what you like, if mod rewrite upload that .htaccess I mentioned above ^.

            Edit: One thing I forgot to mention is, now that you've removed vBSEO unless you use mod rewrite url's in vBulletin AND attempt to rewrite all the old vbseo url heirarchy types to vBulletin it is going to take a little time for Google and other search engines to re-index your site. You should refer to the blog post comments 1031 and 1032 for a hint on how to achieve this i.e. "reverting" in a sense but still having the url's parsed correctly to avoid re-indexing best as possible.
