I suggest not using the EPUB generator at ln.m-chan.org

At this very moment there is a serious issue with generation for books that needs to be addressed by its maintainer simon immediately https://github.com/Lord-Simon/BTE-GEN/issues/4

There are also some Low priority issues too https://github.com/Lord-Simon/BTE-GEN/issues/3 https://github.com/Lord-Simon/BTE-GEN/issues/2

And then there is that fact that last time i checked simon is not properly escaping data thats sent to mysql via php variables.

Why is this bad you might ask? Because if i wanted to i could drop every last table in the database just to prove a point. And so can anyone looking to troll that has the know how.

Simon needs to start answering issues and pull requests like this one https://github.com/Lord-Simon/BTE-GEN/pull/1 instead of letting them stay open for days and or years.

Unless the source you have on github is just to troll which i know its not since your server is basically open like a book to me.

Aside from that fact that you cant properly send die when you don't want shit to work (cough) registering and database creation.

I don't recommend anyone trying to fork this and contribute to it as its poorly maintained and is poorly made (unless of course you feel like rewriting it from scratch to get rid of all the mysql exploits that can be done in it).

I also don't recommend hosting this unless you want a big gaping hole in your mysql database. At least not without restricting access to it severely.

Side note, this is the main reason why the website was taken down o.o?

Most likely because the site went down shortly after this was posted. Although could be wrong so don't take my word for it.
