Re: How to Display an uploaded PDF after topic has been dele

Thanks Frank, Oyabun :-) I do have backups of the forum for that period and could create a temp install (dont want to screw with my live system <grin>) and then restore the backup from that period. Excellent. Also, hex editor excellent, too! I think I still have a few ditties around from the 80s. lo...

Re: How to Display an uploaded PDF after topic has been dele

Dear Canon and Oyabun Both good solutions, but you both miss what I said about the nature of the problem: 1) I do not have the original files as they were deleted when the topic was deleted, so I cannot just create a new topic and upload the numbered filenames with no extension. Got it? I only have ...

Re: How sort newly registered users in ACP?

They come in by date and you can see them in Manage Groups/Inactive. Or you must reset your allowance that all come in as New Registered users -- they are automatically put in that group. This is in Permissions, somewhere. You do not need a Mod, phpBB has been doing it for years. Just trying to help...

Re: FAILED UPDATE 3.0.9 to 3.0.11 HELP!

Hi I am not a phpbb tech support, but familiar with board for 10 years, installing on my own server. Internal Server Error could point to a problem with the dB, or that something can not be written to -- i.e. if certain files have improper permissions for the update wizard. In the older days we used...

How to Display an uploaded PDF after topic has been deleted?

Some months back some members of my group uploaded various PDF files we were working on. Afterwards, for security and other reasons, the topic was deleted. Out with the old, in with the new :-) But now I need to restore (from my backups) several of these files, which I have done, but the related Top...

Re: Double website?

Kell, I believe you hit the nail on the head, exactly. Good Catch! Gun, have you contacted your webmaster / ISP and give him the link. When I said, concatenation, in fact the old programming term is append when printing to BLOB type of file, etc., which the code clearly instructs. I am curious to kn...

Re: Double website?

Probably one of the /includes/function_ .php files which is parsing into that section of the page, somehow is looping, perhaps under the direction of the Lang file or otherwise. Pretty wild. The same stuff is being printed on top of each other, like concatenated. One of the programmer boys will isol...

Thanks for the good info, Lumpy. And thanks for the good link, Steve. Hijacking? Not in the least.

Re: Converting phpBB 2.0.21 to 3.0.5 - with host change

there is no mysql5 option to choose when installing. it is mysql4 which will include mysql5. I seem to remember the question when doing the 2.X install some years ago (2006) However the current thing was just how I edited the config. Thanks for the info, Robert. Much appreciated. In truth, my board...

Re: Converting phpBB 2.0.21 to 3.0.5 - with host change

Nomad I am about to embark on a similar venture, with 2.0.21. I have already moved my entire forum unto my new host, rebuilt the db (has new db name, which is created by cPanel) and updated all data with cPanel's import function, created new user/dbnames (but keeping table conventions) then changed ...

I haven't seen any bbcode for that, but if you just want to replace one english letter for a hebrew letter, it should be a fairly basic code to make. Is there any web site or thread in this forum that you could refer me to? Thanks. Dear Koushibasaki -- or anyone -- is there bbcode to insert Hebrew ...

What were the final results? How extensive a job did you have to do? Are you able now to insert Hebrew letters into your predominantly English language forum? And where is your forum on the MTS website :-)
