Re: Is PHPBB Ready For The Big Time....NOT!

Why should the developers have to do everything for you? They already give their time and knowledge to create software that they allow you to use, completely free. If you're not willing or able to learn how to use the software and/or run a website then don't. Learn to do things for yourself or empl...

Re: Is PHPBB Ready For The Big Time....NOT!

Thank you Koraldon finally someone that "gets it". For a starter I would NEVER delete all the files on the server. I'd rename or download the entire site first, depending on the volume. I don't trust backup and restore functions after having a 600 page site disappear when it got hacked and...

Re: Is PHPBB Ready For The Big Time....NOT!

You mean all that compared to clicking a button on wordpress and 30 seconds later it's updated? Just look at what you've posted and are asking your clients to do to accomplish this.
