Re: Could not connect MySQL 4.1+ using the old insecure

This issue isn't specific to phpBB, so topics with this error for other versions of phpBB will be relevant. Most likely your host has updated the MySQL server and it still has old style passwords in it, which PHP no longer allows. You have to reset the database password and make sure it's using MySQ...

Re: Activate memecache

Then you need to ask your host to install the PHP memcache extension.

Re: E-mail exposes real IP address

As the name of the header implies, it's for abuse purposes. If someone decides to use the email feature of your board to send spam, then mail relays can look at the abuse header and block that instead of just blacklisting everything coming out of your site.

Re: Timeout on Upgrade 3.0.11 to 3.2 - No MSSQL Driver?

PHP itself no longer supports the PHP MSSQL driver and removed it from PHP 5.3+. Thus it has been removed from phpBB as well. You will need to switch to the MSSQL Native driver or use ODBC. You need to update config.php with the new information: $dbms: This will be either mssql_odbc or mssqlnative d...

Re: Cannot send emails through Google SMTP

There's a very simple test to see if the port's open or not. Make a text file, name it test.php, and put this in it: <?php $fp = fsockopen('tls://smtp.gmail.com:587'); if(!$fp) {     echo 'Unable to connect'; } else {     $response = fgets($fp, 256);     echo 'Response: ' . $response; } ?> Upload it...

Re: Random Account Switching

Most browsers have some kind of developers tool section which will show them, usually under the network section. It varies by browser.

Re: SSL Green Lock lost once logged in ?

You have offsite avatars enabled. If someone with an insecure offsite avatar has triggered a notification, their avatar will be in your notification menu making all the pages you visit get flagged as having mixed content. I also see offsite posts from sites like photobucket that aren't using https.

Re: Security Breach in 3.1.10?

We run Varnish on this server, and as I mentioned in your linked topic, there are just a few things we cache with it. You can't just blindly install Varnish in front of dynamic sites and expect it to work. There's always a bit of tuning involved for dynamic sites.
