Re: external program to read database

For several reasons. A complete backup of the site would have to be done by the server provider and I couldn't even get them to repair the database for me. With a pen number and several passwords to get around on my own site to fix it myself and trying to get that pen number and passwords which seem...

Re: external program to read database

I'm calling it quits after 23 years. I'm too old and screwed up to worry with it. I spent plenty of years fighting off Google and a few other big guys just to keep it going. Thanks to PHPbb and all the help over the years.

Re: external program to read database

Its stored it in the filezilla download and I assume it will have to be uploaded to a server? I tried to get it to put it on my hard drive where I could get to it, but it said something about it couldn't copy it to the root directory or something like that. I guess I'll try to upload it back to the ...

Re: external program to read database

I removed the whole forums and database to my computer using filezilla since the forums were unusable so there is no way to come up with the specific error now. I assumed that using rebuild all would do it, but since I couldn't get to it to try it the forums were useless. Main problem being I'm now ...

Re: external program to read database

BTW the database is about 20 years big. I only pruned a few of the forums, but kept the ones with usable data as is. I'm now looking for another server to move the site to and would pay someone else to work with me to do it.

Re: external program to read database

It kept giving an sql error, but I couldn't get to it to repair it. Like I said the server is so screwed up I can't do anything on it. I kept trying to get support to do it for me with no luck. At this point it is either shut the whole site down or try to move it to a different server.

Re: external program to read database

Is there someway to rebuild the database offline? I downloaded the forums to my computer with a screwed up database and would like to rebuild it and possibly put it back online. My server provider has so much security that I can't even get to it to rebuild it. Another reason I want to shut the site ...

Re: Youtube videos code not working

When I tried changing all of the http to https I got the following warning. I don't understand the risks involved. Warning The BBCode you are trying to add seems to use a {TEXT} token inside a HTML attribute. This is a possible XSS security issue. Try using the more restrictive {SIMPLETEXT} or {INTT...
