Strange, I posted here after installing this mod to say that I was still getting new spam users but the post (cant think why a mod would delete it) has gone...maybe this thread is for positive agreement posts only? Anyway, I'm back to say that after nearly a week they have all but given up bombing m...

The strangest thing...after installing this mod, I am now getting just as many bots registering (around 15 a day) but they are now simply not submitting sig or website details! Their entries for all fields are blank...I don't see the point in this? maybe they plan to bot back later to add them if i ...

The latest one, i updated yesterday but before then it was 2.0.15, i've not left it long really between checking. I've done some readong on htaccess since panic posting and have actually just deleted the offending files out of caution...but if anyone knows anymore i'd be interested.

Thanks

Hacked?

I've just looked at my webspace and i'm pretty sure phpbb doesnt include files called masslol.txt, oracle.2 and in the cgi-bin a file called entropy banner.cgi Also, what do .htaccess files do? Is this what is allowing access by a hacker to my space? Should I delete them? Sorry a little OT i mean th...

I've just run into problems with this. I had it running fine before but now i've updated to 2.0.17 it no longer shows the signature area in your profile, and as such a few of my members are getting huffy! I overwrote the two files back to their 2.0.17 full versions and started from scratch but still...

Thanks for the link CTC I did it and it works great, no user can enter a web link in their profile or sig until they've hit 10 posts....that should stop the buggers.

I'm no oracle on the subject but I really think you should simply install the newest version as updating from pre 2.0 is if I remember not possible...or at least not worth it. If you are worried about losing your database, back it up...several times, compressed and none compressed, and also from php...

To update from 2.0.11 to 2.0.13 Download the 'files only' update to your hard drive. Unzip the file to any new folder, lets call it 'update' for now. Unzip the file 2.0.11 to 2.0.13 into the main directory (the folder we called update), NOT into a folder called 2.0.11to2.0.13!!! Delete all the zip f...

blank white screen problem - had it for months now

Hi all, this problem forced me to upgrade from my old ISP given webspace to a private host for my forum but now, after everything, I'm getting the blank white screen problem back with no sign as to what the problem could be. On my previous site, I think we may have been hacked and almost half the us...

If you have the right directory (check), the try chmodding your install folder to 755. Your FTP program can do this.

btw it's /install/install.php not just install.php
