Due to being hacked, I now have ufw firewall set to block all outside traffic except for ports 80 and 443. Could this possibly affect php's ability to be passed paramaters from the url? For instance: Code: http://www.robotsandcomputers.com/robots/personal.php?filename=dogcom.htm the filename is not being passed to the php script. Code: http://www.robotsandcomputers.com/counter/counter.php?page=robots&digit=ocr neither the page filename (robots) or the digit (ocr) are being passed to the script. If the firewall has nothing to do with this, is there anything else that could cause it? Thanks.
