Re: Best/easiest way to downgrade to previous version after failed upgrade

If you have a backup of the database and the files, rewrite your public_html back and update the database with phpmyadmin from your backup. If you don't...

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

If team members run Win 10, therein lies the problem. LOL ... Are you implying I should go back to Vista? :lol: HAHA No... Use what ever floats your boat. I'm using 7, and will continue to do so for a long as I have my new computer build. I figure by the time I build a new computer some 7-10 years ...

For the hell of it, check out Stream Armor. Maybe some kind of malware snatched the API key.

I'd sure like to know how this is happening so that I can mitigate it.

The hat in the corner of your avatar is a witch's hat.

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?

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...
