Manage Free Image Hosts

Written by HostGeekZ

Having a problem managing your free image host? Well i'm sorry but so many new free image hosts are poping up now adays, and then closing because they are not setup to handle abuse properly.

If you plan on running one, you have to plan FOR abuse. The main way I am solving this now is by ACTIVE moderation, but in this little "guide" I will explain how to find and solve an abuse problem.

So lets get started.

First login to your server and checkrepparttar load and so on.

uptime 16:22:15 up 67 days, 5:13, 1 user, load average: 1.30, 2.38, 2.70

As you see this server is having a high load, if you have 2 processors then this should not worry you, but in this case it does not. So lets check out whats causing such a high load.


18340 root 15 0 4332 4088 3056 S 20.3 0.4 0:28 0 httpd 16347 root 20 0 1316 1316 856 R 1.9 0.1 0:00 0 top 1 root 15 0 112 84 56 S 0.0 0.0 0:04 0 init

As we see, httpd is causing a very high load. On image hosting, it is a different way from any other host, as you know its going to be an abuse image. So just go straight and find out why, check your netstat output for ips with multiple connections, also understand this will only find forum posts with multiple images. In my experience its these boards that causerepparttar 145166 main problem.

netstat -an | grep :80 | sort | awk '{print $5}'

You should see lots of ips, if you are unable to view them all atrepparttar 145167 same time you can either save to a file or userepparttar 145168 | more command.

netstat -an | grep :80 | sort | awk '{print $5}' >> file.txt netstat -an | grep :80 | sort | awk '{print $5}' | more

Just for easy viewing, now its up to you to decide ips with lots of connections.

In this example I will pick

Now we want to see what this ip is viewing, this is on a cPanel server so it logs to /usr/local/apache/domlogs , yours may be different.

Now ls -al, and get your sites name log, most commonly this will be your sites name. For our example we will use HostGeekZ.com , so lets view it for that ip.

cat HostGeekZ.com | grep

Your output will obviously be different, but I just picked 1 entry out ofrepparttar 145169 entire things they accessed. - - [11/Jun/2005:16:28:05 -0500] "GET /Uploads/Images/DDS1.jpg HTTP/1.1" 200 3677 "http://www.fmforums.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=30783" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)"

Now this tells us they where on http://www.fmforums.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=30783 viewing /Uploads/Images/DDS1.jpg , which just so happens to be a R-Rated pictures, so we will go ahead and blockrepparttar 145170 ip, removerepparttar 145171 picture(s), and block this board from hosting pictures.

So lets banrepparttar 145172 ip first.

iptables -I INPUT -s -j DROP

Please read more about iptables by typing `man iptables`, you can block them in your firewall and so on, I just prefer to use iptables.

Now we want to removerepparttar 145173 offending images, commonly they use names that are offensive, or they use similar names for each, ie if it was called HostGeekZ1.jpgrepparttar 145174 next one will be HostGeekZ2.jpg and so on.

So go to your images directory, in this case /Uploads/Images , and type ls -al | grep partofimage

Again in this case DDS

So we type

cd /Uploads/Images root@server [Uploads/Images]# ls -al | grep DDS -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 79379 Jun 9 13:51 DDS10.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 77263 Jun 9 13:12 DDS11.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 86064 Jun 9 13:55 DDS12.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 92410 Jun 9 13:14 DDS13.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 78852 Jun 8 11:04 DDS14.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 151096 Jun 8 11:57 DDS15.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 74239 Jun 8 11:06 DDS16.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 88448 Jun 9 13:45 DDS17.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 26334 Jun 9 13:47 DDS18.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 23386 Jun 9 13:08 DDS19.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 94533 Jun 8 10:58 DDS1.jpg -rw-rw-rw- 1 nobody nobody 71576 Jun 8 11:49 DDS20.jpg
