In many cases, the implementation of modules is really difficult. For that reason I created this little tutorial to support you.

So let's beginn.

At first, you need to download the php-file floodassassin.php under Download. Get the full package and extract it, whereever you want to use it.

Now let's beginn with the code. We need a little configuration-file, with the data of your MySQL-Database.
    $sqlHost        = 'localhost';    //Default is localhost
    $sqlUsername    = 'root';        //Type here your username
    $sqlPassword    = 'root';        //The password
    $sqlDatabase    = 'floodassassin'; //Your database
    $sqlTable        = 'floodrules';    //The databasetable
        For this tutorial we have a table called floodrules.

Save that code above as configuration.php in the same directory as floodassassin.php.

Get your database filled up. In your package should be a dummy.sql file. Upload it in your phpMyAdmin (same database, as in the configuration-file). The dummy.sql also includes some basic rules.
If you alread got an old version do the same but with update-dummy.sql.

Now it's time to talk about the main usage of floodassassin.php. Let's say, there was a Form on the previous page, with 3 input-fields.
field_content, field_name and field_mail. The mail-field is optional

    /* At first, we need to
       call the floodassassin-file */
    require_once 'floodassassin.php';
    if (isset($_POST['field_content']) && isset($_POST['field_name']))
        //Only initialize the FLOODASSASIN-class, if needed
        $objFloodAssassin = new FLOODASSASSIN();
        $content    = $_POST['field_content'];
        $name        = $_POST['field_name'];
        $mail        = isset($_POST['field_mail']) ? $_POST['field_mail']:'';
        $ip        = isset($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']) ? $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']:'';
        $result    = $objFloodAssassin->checkMessage($content, $name, $mail, $ip);
            Now $result should be an array
            [0] => Messagelevel. The higher the bigger the chance of spam
            [1] => Messagelevels. All levels
            [2] => Descriptions. The description of the levels
        if ($result[0] >= 3)
        {    //It seems, that the message is spam.
            //Do whatever you want
        {    //It seems clear
            //Do whatever you want

So for example the content of the message is the following:
Hello Jo! Your pictures are great!

The result of this text would be the following:
    [0] => 2.4
    [1] => Array
            [0] => -0.1
            [1] => 0.5
            [2] => 2
            [3] => 0
            [4] => 0

    [2] => Array
            [0] => HELLO
            [1] => NOT READABLE
            [2] => SMALL TEXT
            [3] => LINKS (0)
            [4] => MAILS (0)
