RSS Subscribe Upload block on *.php files
Posted on 02/02/11 05:24PM

This announcement only applies to clients on our Corporate and Business Class web hosting plans on our New Zealand based server cluster.

Next weekour providers will start blocking *.php files from being uploaded via web pages.

On the morning on the 7th of February they will start blocking *.php file uploads via the Linux web cluster. Please note,they are only blocking *.php files from being uploaded via web based forms; you will still be able to upload *.php files using FTP.


*.php files are often uploaded via exploited web scripts and used to send Spam and run DoS attacks amongst other things. The monitoring they have had in-place over the last week has not detected any legitimate *.php uploads, so we expect no impact on clients.
