Much the opposite, I really like it! A linguistic misunderstanding, I suppose the meaning of this expression sounds more positive in my native language. :)
Jim, I was joking. You know what a joke is, right? You don't have to act so formal all the time. There was no misunderstanding.

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

Please only bother to reply if you have something useful to input. Please do not tell people to not reply when they are providing free voluntary information to your ungrateful self. That being said, I'm not sure if you're a narcissist or a douche-bag. Maybe you're both. But I do know that after rea...

There are way worse views.
In other words, Jim is not impressed. But I am. Great view!

Re: MySQL Update from 5.6 to 5.7

A backup of phpBB through the ACP can be used and restored on a newer database version. I speak from experience.

Official link:

There is also YouTube for visual instructions.

Re: CSP help

Well scratch that. I have to disable the CSP because I can't edit WordPress pages with it on. Looking at the web console I have all kinds of script error crap I have no idea what it all means. I go through the same issue. I have 3 different nginx.conf files, each with different levels of security f...

Re: Security Plug Ins

Firstly you need a VPS/Dedicated server where you have access to the firewall configuration. There is plenty of articles out there to describe how to implement this and it will vary depending on the server, if you have CSF on the server just google CSF deny all but cloudflare. Cool, I'll do some re...

Re: PHP 7.3

If that is what Marc said on Discord a few weeks ago, then I rest my case. phpBB 3.3 will support PHP 7.3. But I'll cover a few obvious points to help you out. 1. phpBB 3.3 is not out yet, therefore no one is using it in a public environment. If they are, then they shouldn't be. 2. PHP 7.3.0 and PHP...

Re: Security Plug Ins

I'm glad to help. Also, if you're hosting your website, be sure all software components are fully up to date on a regular basis. That will often patch known security holes. If you're going with a host provider, then its out of your hands and in theirs. Host providers don't always keep their software...

Re: PHP 7.3

phpBB 3.3 will support it.

Stick with PHP 7.2 for now.

Although it is nice to know the lowest versions of software that are supported, it is also important to know the highest supported versions, too. In the User Guide, maybe it should get updated to reflect that.

Re: Security Plug Ins

You're welcome. :) Have a backup plan in place and be sure everything is backed up on a regular basis. If you lose anything, or everything, you can look at the logs and figure out what went wrong, patch it up, restore everything and then go live again. You can prevent this by fire-walling all traffi...

Re: Security Plug Ins

1) phpBB has no security holes. If it did, they would get patched pretty quickly. 2) A good Q/A is all you need for registering. Don't make it too obvious. 3) Be sure you use TLS (https) with a key and certificate. Support TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 only. Do not allow TLSv1.1 or below since it is considere...
