base64_encode license checks add-on

Lee Mason shared this idea 6 years ago
Under Consideration

some hosts (specifically hostgator as one) use mod security, and the licensing add-on triggers one of the rules this puts in place.

this results in a 406 error, and then runaway accesses to the site because the license can't be validated.

to work round this i suggest the licensing add-on allows license check fields (ip,domain,dir) to be bade64_encoded

this would need to be optional for backwards compatibility, but it would allow people to update the scripts and hopefully bypass the mod security issue that keeps flagging up.
