And why the name Halloween? 8-)
The hat in the corner of your avatar is a witch's hat.

And BTW - I believe I have a few of your extensions.

Re: Travis folder

I wonder why you are so strict in security (as you stated multiple times) but still using extensions not yet validated. Extensions that are in the CDB don't have any travis folder. BTW i am not used to provide packages with travis inside. That's another story though. :) HAHA So far so good! I'm sur...

Re: Travis folder


This can't be the reason why it's named Travis.

If you see that folder, you probably use github versions of the extensions and not extensions from cdb.

See travis for more information
So this folder can be safely removed I take it?

What is cdb?

Travis folder

I see this folder in all my extensions. What exactly is it and what does it do? And why the name Travis?

Re: SMTP password keeps reverting

It could also be a cache issue. Are you using CloudFlare?

Re: [Discuss] [Security] phpBB 3.2.2 Packages Compromised

Okay, I see it here: https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2456896 It sounds like the account was hacked as no one should be able to get into your account without the password. I for one have 2FA on CloudFlare and my DNS provider. I also use DNSSEC. CloudFlare can help mitigate many a...

Re: [Discuss] [Security] phpBB 3.2.2 Packages Compromised

In view of the latest announcement of the cause of the problem it strikes as yet another reason to avoid Cloudflare at all costs - what other issues have there been that users may not have been aware of? What other problems may there be waiting to happen? What does CloudFlare have anything to do wi...

Force change password extension

Is there such an extension? I would like to have something like that in case I discover my database has been hacked. Ah! Think I found my solution: https://www.phpbb.com/support/docs/en/3.2/ug/adminguide/general_server/ Press Control + F and type password and you will find the relevant Info. I guess...

Re: CLI UPGRADE

I'm familiar with Xampp, but what is Xampp shell? Are you hosting the site with Xampp? If so, then you may need to change the way you log in with Putty. Also note that Xampp needs to be highly configured so that you are not hacked while using Xampp. Have you read Xampp's webpage on running Xampp as ...

Re: how to write a few non-ASCII characters in phpBB

I don't think it's so much as a phpBB thing, but rather an OS side of things. Those characters only appear because your operating system can interpret them. You should be able to write in Greek without issue. Edit- I can confirm it works. I don't have any special settings. https://techcomputerforum....

Re: Unable to uncheck "Send statistical information"

No, has nothing to do with shared hosting. I have shard hosting and have access to enable or disable mod_security.
