Some users take things too far, and need to be banned. This is how you can IP ban a user. WARNING: IP bans are circumventable. Please take extreme caution.

  1. Log into phpMyAdmin (GDPS Management -> GDPS Links -> phpMyAdmin)

  2. Once you're in, you should see a lot of things. Just click on the button that is circled in the image below:

  1. A lot of things should appear on the sidebar. Just find users and click on it

  1. There should be a table of all of your GDPS's users. Look for the username of the person you'd like to ban. Let's assume I want to ban xavvvv (what did I ever do?)

  1. As shown by my amazing highlighting, focus on the row with that person's username on it.

  2. Find their user ID and put it somewhere. You're not going to need it now, but you will later, so copy it into Notepad or something.

  1. Use the scrollbar at the bottom of the screen to scroll to the other end of the page.

  2. You should see their IP somewhere on that row; copy it, we're going to need it in a moment. Also, try not to leak everyone's IP. It's not nice.

  1. You are now done in the users section. loud confetti noises Now, let's move on. Focus on the sidebar for a minute and find bannedips. Click on it.

  1. You should see this screen; Click on the Insert button at the top of your screen (the button that is circled)

  1. There should be a table. Find the IP row and edit the value. It should already say Delete it and paste in the user's IP but don't press ENTER once you're done. Just click onto the text box underneath (ID).

  1. Next, you'll need to find the user's ID. Remember we copied it earlier? You should have copied it into Notepad if you were following the guide correctly. Paste it into the textbox and hit Go.

You should now be done! Feel free to repeat the process for as many people as you want. Thanks for reading, I hope I helped! :)
