Having some trouble with a "splogger", or content thief, whom I would like to lock out of my blogger blog. I found some code to accomplish this here:
The procedure requires that I upload a php file to the server. The author of the script says "simply upload the file", but I am not finding it quite so simple.
I created the php file on my computer, and then set up a subdomain here on 000webhost.com, which I understand supports php.
I then tried to upload the php file using the file manager, but could not seem to make it happen. I was able to Browse to the php file on my computer, but the upload does not seem to be occur. Or maybe the file manager is putting the php file somewhere I cannot see it.
From the article I notice that somehow the script or php file is to be transformed into a URL. Not quite clear to me how that would occur.
Is there some information here on how to upload a script and transform it into a URL?
Probably this is very basic. I appreciate your help with it.
Thank you for your insights.
ps. This morning the php file, which is called limogesblocker.php appears in the list shown by the file manager. So it did upload. Here is a screen grab. Following instructions from the host, I deleted a file called default.php.
There exists a URL for my hosted site, which is shown, but how the script is to be somehow made accessible through this URL is not clear to me. Thank you for your insights. John
