Re: PhPBB 3.24 BUG??

no expert at all on security but phpbb has not had a successful hack since 2007 when phpbb3 came out.

more often than not, those so called security testing programs give out false positives due to their own inadequacies.


personally, I wouldn't worry about it.

Re: Discuss: phpBB 3.2.4 Release

you don't need to do 3.2.3 first. however, do NOT use the autoupdate package.
do the full file replacement method mentioned in the instructions.

Re: 'center' tag in phpbb3 :<

I haven't checked that but I have never heard of a center attribute for float. just left, right and none.

Re: A visitor will enter an email address

why not just require that people be registered before they can post. that way you will know they are at least a little serious.
allowing guest posting can grow into a very large problem for many boards. it can become unmanageable over time and you wind up losing the whole board etc.

Re: newsletter in html

I understand but since there is no function in standard phpbb to create html email it would probably be easier and faster to do it using a program designed for it. you simply run one query on your database to get all the usernames and/or email addresses. you save that as a csv file. then, whatever e...

Re: Lost Ability To Make Sticky and Announcement

Edit: I just looked and my moderative permissions are all red. Do I need to be in the moderator group to change this? I have no idea what changed my settings. There's no need for you to be in the Moderator group, normally as Administrator you should have full access. (but I'll have a quick look at ...

Re: Lost Ability To Make Sticky and Announcement

you should never remove anyone from the registered user group. every registered user should be in that group. then, if you are wanting to add subract permissions you do that with other groups. like he said above, you use the permission masks to figure out where the wrong permission is coming from. i...

Re: newsletter in html

since html email in phpbb is a security risk you are not likely to get one anytime soon. I would suggest you simply download a mailing list from your database and use it in whatever email/newsletter software you have for this. it will work much better and give you a lot more options than anything yo...

Re: Creating posts without approval from my IP address

sorry but you are simply making no sense about what you are trying to accomplish and why. you really should not let guests post at all, with or without approval. I have no idea what you are trying to say about only people from your IP being able to post without approval. there is no need to set anyt...

don't hold your breath for this.

Re: Prevent directory listing with redirect

for the root of the board, there is no index.htm file there is only the index.php file as long as that file is where it belongs, nobody will ever see your directory listing for the board. most, if not all, of the rest of the directories have a index.htm file to keep visitors from seeing the director...

Re: Acitve Account Error

that php version should work just fine.
php 7.3 may not even be officially released yet. not sure.
however, phpbb is not setup to work on it yet as far as I know.

so, stick with php 5.6.x and you will be fine.

Re: Acitve Account Error

just go to yourdomain.com/yourphpbb/install

do not put the app.php after it.
then click on the update tab. then click on the update button, then click on update database only.
