Re: "Filling table phpbb_posts:" "skip_rows..."

Ah yes, thanks!

It suggested I click 'no' on that first time. I'll ignore this suggestion from now on. :)

(wow, the installer works well!)

Re: "Filling table phpbb_posts:" "skip_rows..."

This is great, however I have over a million posts in my database and this message seems to come up after about every 6-8000 rows, and I have to click continue each time.

When I do the upgrade for real, is there a way to do bigger steps for a quicker (and less frustrating) upgrade?

thx!

I wonder if after version 3 comes out, maybe the phpBB team will consider a slightly shorter release cycle? There's a range of opinions and pros vs cons to short vs long release cycles. Some open source projects release daily, others like to take their time. For example, it took a few years for the ...

Loads of dodgy requests - phpBB worm?

Woke up this morning to find my site checker complaining that my site was unreachable... after I SSH'd in and had a look around I found the box was swamped with more http requests than it could handle, all similar to this: 1.2.3.4 - - [18/Apr/2005:22:33:10 +0100] "GET /forums/viewtopic.php?t=89...

I can't offer an explanation, but I can tell you I've seen a lot of problems in Mozilla with various phpBB sites I've come across. Normally you get a blank screen rather than the binary data, but it's equally useless. I have no idea if it's phpBB's fault, Mozilla's fault or a fault in people's web s...

Thank you! This is very useful, very much appreciated. I made it show the top 100 words and selected 65 of them. DB went from around 25 to 21Mb. It's near essential to look through the words - e.g. on my music forums "music", "album" and "single" probably ought to stay...

Is this definitely a bug? A quick look at the code and database shows a IMHO slightly odd implementation, but no stale messages. Some relevant code seems to be in privmsg.php , look for: // SQL to pull appropriate message, prevents nosey people // reading other peoples messages ... hopefully! and in...

This looks really neat, and I appreciate the work people are doing on this... but before I dive in I do have one worry - how safe is it? Will Google chuck sites out of their index because of this? http://www.google.com/webmasters/2.html Last paragraph: ...setting up pages/links with the sole purpose...

[Answered] Best way to report a security flaw?

I have found a small, relatively harmless but not insignificant security problem in phpBB 2.0.1 OK, I could be missing something, it's a big project phpBB with lots of forums surrounding it and lots of places where I shouldn't post something. But I can't see a big friendly link saying "If you t...

I must say I prefer to do browser detection in the browser itself. That is the only way to be sure it's correct. If two users are accessing the same page with different browsers, but via the same proxy server, there is a possibility of caching issues causing one of the users to receive the wrong cod...
