The main IRC channel is #lynxchan at Rizon.
I also created a side-channel with the same name at OFTC for TOR users.
Avoid using the channel at OFTC unless you REALLY can't or don't want to use Rizon to avoid fragmenting information exchange.

LYNXCHAN DB IS UNSAFE! WARNING TO ALL = Protect Database Access
If you are using a data such as Mongo DB as your persistent storage, you also need to protect access to the database as well as prevent database being compromised by attackers. If you are using MongoDB as your database, following things should be considered as important.

Enable client authentication in MongoDB to prevent the situation “Everyone is admin”.

By default, MongoDB does not enforce authentication to access databases. This is really harmful since anybody has direct access to the database content even if they do not have access to use your application. So you need to implement client authentication in MongoDB and prevent malicious access to the data.

Sanitize user inputs used in MongoDB queries

MongoDB query language is a javascript based technique. Due to this nature, MongoDB is also vulnerable to script injection attacks. When you use user supplied input values inside mongo db queries you should properly enforce type checks and necessary input validations and sanitizations to prevent attackers executing malicious scripts on your database.



lynxchan SECURITY RISK Anonymous 02/10/2019 (Sun) 03:02:18 No. 544 [Reply]
You ALWAYS have an excuse or rude comment for everything that you do wrong but are too stupid to fix. There is a reason that lynxchan did not amount to anything... mostly because you are a fucking idiot. Lynxchan is not secure, has a shitty front end that no one uses, and all the lynxchan boards have no
real website or users. MEWCH was the only good lynxchan board and that failed because of the horrible security flaws. Lynxchan is a joke made to fool stupid people who are not aware of security.

mongofiles -h localhost -d {dbName} -p 27017 -l {/root/LynxChan/favicon.ico} put favicon.ico

I think you fucked up the syntax, read on mongofiles documentation.

so is all that shit a joke??? I just put the favicon in the static directory and it works now. Why would you tell people that a command is needed??

The default that I ship is lynxchan, not LynxChan.



penumbra Anonymous 01/19/2019 (Sat) 16:56:30 No. 525 [Reply]
So how come now when one installs lynxchan, it comes with penumbra ok fine but when one starts lynxchan there are are shitloads of errors that show up before it starts. Before, the penumbra thingy never gave a shitload of errors like that.

What errors are you getting?

Hi. Using the placeholder front end and going to my site (index.html) can you pls tell me the file to edit the top left (in the address bar where the favicon usually is) it says "My chan" in the address bar and I did not see the title in the html or css. Thanks!

Go to global settings and change the site name.



workers Anonymous 01/20/2019 (Sun) 23:17:00 No. 526 [Reply]
When starting lynxchan with penumbra, it always says one worker booted then the other. Using other front ends it just says worker 2 booted when starting it up. Is it supposed to say worker 1 then worker 2 booted? THanks.

Already replied that on the other thread.

by the way, i couldnt upload a pic of how garbled penumbra looks from a cell phone- it said there was an error. im on an iphone.

Why the fuck don't you reply to your own threads?



Cell phones are how people browse Anonymous 01/21/2019 (Mon) 07:12:24 No. 527 [Reply]
Look at the top links in penumbra. On a cell phone it is two lines of garbled shit when viewed from a cell phone. There are too many links there. People MOSTLY browse with phones, and that is an absolute fact. 4chan is mibile friendly, 8chan is bloated and awkward on a phone. The default placeholder like the one you use on this site looks decent on a mobile phone - yet it it is not quite easy and fluid as 4chan on a phone. The state of message boards is interesting- php is RAPIDLY going to shit, it is almost shocking that 4chan uses php yet. Lynxchan is the best. Take away the bloat and lynxchan is the best option by far- it could easily be a commercial product for christ sake. MAKE CHANS GREAT AGAIN god dammit! I am a shitposter and i approve this message.

this is NOT mobile friendly. Look at the top links. Penumbra is cool on a desktop, it really is but it is broken on mobile phones.

Anonymous 01/21/2019 (Mon) 15:13:15 No. 535
Yup, penumbra doesn't take mobile in consideration at all.

So sometimes when I start lynxchan it says worker 2 started. Sometimes it says worker 1 started, then worker 2 started on the next terminal line. Does this mean my fe is fucked up? Does it have to say both worker 1 then worker 2 started in order to know its working right?
