Re: How to prevent creation of SPAM topics with topic_last_poster_id=0?

... and NEVER delete members/topics/posts directly from the database. Everything is interlinked and you need to delete them from the phpBB software It's not possible to delete such topics via phpBB. Because when I click on such topic to enter it (to see the list of posts in it) it shows "The reques...

Re: 2nd attempt to update phpBB3 yields Catchable fatal error

Compare what's on the server to what's on your computer.

It's often the /vendor folder.

Ok thx.
you can close the topic.
I downloaded a older phpbb version and now work fine.

Re: Has my forum been hacked

Probably not. That's just spam. Everyone gets it. Looks like you've turned off registration. Was that after the account posted? As for the visitor totals, they include guests and sometimes if the bots find a new server they'll visit a bit more than usual and push up the numbers while they try to mak...

Re: phpBB questions-looking for a forum

Yes but I would double check with them before signing up to a specific hosting deal with them. If you do a search on here for '2mb maximum' you'll find an awful lot of people that believe they have bigger limits than they really do.

Re: phpBB questions-looking for a forum

1 - The file format is not a problem as you can create new attachment groups that allow new suffixes. Size is often dependent on the host. Many set a limit of 2Mb per upload. You would have to negotiate directly with the host to increase that. 2 - Attachments can be reduced to a thumbnail or you can...

That's not right. Even a brand new installation would be bigger than that.
It's likely to be a few Mb at least. How many users and posts did you have?

Open it in a text editor and post the first 50 lines here.

Re: move a phpBB forum in another server

You need to upload the database backup you said you had.
I would un gzip it first and just upload the sql file using FTP to the folder the bigdump.php file is in. Then when you launch it, it should find it straight away and take you to the import screen.

Re: move a phpBB forum in another server

At the top of that article in the requirements section there is a link to bigdump. That's a little bit of script that helps you to upload large database backups to a new server. You edit the file to add your own database login info and then when you go to yoursite.com/yourfolder/bigdump.php it will ...
