I'm glad to hear it. Like 'Quinn1981' said, if your board is bang up to date, you back up your DB daily and have no insecure mods you should be OK.

I'm off to enjoy the sunshine now!
Best wishes,

Re: big trafice surge today

i will check on admins-but how do i check?? You need access to phpMyAdmin on your server. That will show you your database structure and table data. You need to find the table called 'php_users' and browse for any users with the user_level of 1. 1 = admin rights. Only you and anyone else you have g...

phpBB 2.0.15

Am I the only long-term user of phpBB who is getting just a little fed up of all these bloody updates? We have now had four updates in just over four months and each time those of us who have mods must spend hours re-patching the same files over and over again and then testing functions to see if th...

Someone told me once that php cannot name the error page or the 5 or so pages that are loaded between page loads that we dont see, so it often uses page names it knows...........although they arent what the person is seeing. If that makes sense? Yes it does. Perfect sense. I am very grateful for th...

Ok. Thanks for that. I believe you. It's obviously no good me giving you a link to the board because the forum in question is not visible to guests or to registered users. It just puzzles me why bots can (apparently) 'see' a forum neither guests nor registered users can. But let's drop it as it's cl...

Thanks Robert, I did and do get that. I'm sorry if I'm being irritatingly pedantic, but I still don't understand why the ACP is telling me that a guest is viewing a specific , named, hidden, forum. Where is it getting that information from? Surely, if the guest is merely seeing the login screen the ...

well i had the same kinda thing but my site was over run...accounts taken the kid made himself admin I am sorry to hear that. I take it your board was not updated to the latest version? It's absolutely critical that phpBB admins keep their boards bang up to date. The phpBB developers do their bit b...

Security breach?

Today we noticed that our ACP was showning a 'guest' browsing a hidden forum on our board. This forum is both hidden and restricted to moderators only. AFAIK this is (theoretically) impossible with phpBB. The IP in question was: 24.235.141.218. d235-141-218.home1.cgocable.net. Location: Burlington (...

Generally, good ideas. However, for number two, you shouldn't even have the folder on your server in the first place. Once you've installed, delete that folder. I agree. I meant your 'phpBB installation'. I believe he was referring to the folder on your FTP in which the phpbb forum software was ins...

Tip: simple ways to protect your board

I hope a newbie will be forgiven for suggesting some simple ways to prevent new users of phpBB getting hacked? My post was prompted by the attempt of a hacker (which we logged) to try to gain access to our board which is the latest version. Needless to add they failed! 1. keep your installation bang...

You need to put the file update_to_latest.php in a folder called install and point your browser to http://yourdomain/phpBB2/install/update_to_latest.php Jim, you're a gem and I'm an idiot. All spiffy now, ta! ;-) Thanks to everyone else who replied so quickly too. You folks are the best and don't l...
