I fubar’d my site while banning an IP. It was only down for a short period so ya’ll couldn’t have gone into withdrawals that fast. So, if you get a 500 internal server error and then check your error logs in your cpanel and it tells you that you have a bad flag delimiter, then go to your .htaccess and add at the top of that file deny 18.104.22.168 and then upload it. Viola, it starts working again. I’m assuming there is a learning lesson here somewhere but it is beyond me at this point because I really needed that IP banned lol Although with this fix in, I’m assuming I can ban until my hearts content now and it will still work. Let’s pray shall we?
