Is there any Anti Leeching module/script available on our server

Also, do you have this Installed on the server,

It sounds good


#2

No, but there is a “hotlink prevention” tool available in the panel (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Preventing_hotlinking)

No.

Thank, I will check that out now, but does it prevent leeching from files or just images

BTW, is it possible to install software like the ones I mentioned above manually


#4

You can set it up to prevent leeching of any file type. :wink:

Generally speaking, yes you can install most such software. With the exception of some things that require root access (or of course things that violate the TOS) you can install other software on your account (though I have not looked at that particular package).

I want to install a script, but it requires to Restart the Apache Server, is it possible to restart the server by us, Also is there a specific time, like the DH apache server restarts once a day or once a week

Prevents users from hot-linking to media files on this server and subsequently using your bandwidth. It denies all referring URLs other than the list below (plus this site’s URL) to media file extensions.

Important: The mod_rewrite module must be installed and enabled in your httpd.conf file (plus apache restart if necessary) for this to work!, otherwise you will get internal server error messages! If this happens then delete the .htaccess file manually from the server.


#6

No, you can’t restart the server and no, DreamHost apache’s are not restarted on a daily, or predictable basis.

Why would you need to do that using a script? The wiki has all the information you need to do that using .htaccess., and you can also accomplish that via the panel (as I’ve previously described).

Ok. Dreamhost has mod_rewrite installed and enabled. Why would you need to restart apache?
