Re: BadMash3 Exploit

If it's a server vulnerability then your host will have to look into it and fix that. Your host should offer you a backup once every 24 hours. If your site is altered in anyway then the backup can be restored, providing that backup doesn't have the altered content. This is why you should make period...

Re: SSL HTTPS help URGENT PLEASE HELP

You may want to read my write up I have a link to in my signature. I would also use CloudFlare and CIDRAM. I know the author of CIDRAM. I can help you greatly at protecting your site, although, I'm code stupid. :lol: As far as HTTPS goes. Just use cPanel's Lets Encrypt free service. It should be the...

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.2 Release

Basically, if you have essential core file edits, it's best to keep a document describing them, This is what I do since I had nothing but trouble with the auto update package going back to like 3.1.1. Now I just do an over write and mod my files all back to what they were before. Prior to doing tha...

Re: forum off line...please help me!!!

I think I recognize that error. Some web hosts have PHP configured in a way that prevents DOM from reading local files. I don't remember how it works but it's something related to network settings, somehow. You can test it locally with something like this, which should output bool(true) on a workin...

You answered no to having any extension installed, but the error is indicating this extension: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2272431 Perhaps your friend that installed the forum for you installed that extension and perhaps other extensions as well. And to clear things up on w...

Re: What's the easiest OS/DB to run phpBB on from a maintenance standpoint??

If you want to host locally, you are better off installing CentOS and LAMP (Linux Apache, MySQL, PHP) in a virtual machine and go from there. Xampp or Wamp are never meant to host websites to the wild west of the Internet as they are not very secure. I have, however used Xampp to create one of my fo...

Re: [3.2][ALPHA] Modern quote - multiquote and quote highlighted text

Quick reply is on as this extension requires it. I never had it on from the begin with, but it's on now. If you are having an issue with this extension then it's more than likely related to another one of your extensions you have installed. I would try disabling any extension you suspect as having a...

Re: [3.2][ALPHA] Modern quote - multiquote and quote highlighted text

Seems to work and the quote button is next to the text this time. I don't have a problem with the quoted user name. I tried this in two forums both with different themes.

Re: [3.2][ALPHA] Modern quote - quote highlighted text

Okay, so this time the quote bottom is way at the bottom. If you can discover some type of code the places the quote button near the quoted text it would be a very good thing to do. I haven't tried this with a smartphone yet.

Re: Help needed with spam

You're welcome. I use the sortables captcha myself and it has worked. I also use a script that uses the stop forum database. But that other extension would achieve the same result. The script I use is called CIDRAM and if interested check it out.
