I'll answer for Dave, because I know we have similar thoughts on this. Neither of us is willing to 'upgrade' to a version that requires so many bug fixes. I consider the threat of hacking much less of a probability than deliberately breaking my forums by upgrading to what I consider a failed releas...

Or, even better than removing the login, reply, etc php page, I can gut them and just have a simple html message saying "This funtion not available in Archives"

Making a secure Archive forum with legacy topics

I'm looking for the advice of someone who knows phpBB really well . I want to have an archive section that will allow people read-only access to a 1.44 phpBB version with legacy topics. I've installed 1.44 and imported the topics, posts, users, forums, categories, and posts_text. To make it secure, ...

Ok, I downloaded Big Dump, after dropping tables it works flawlessly. Much easier than splitting posts_text into 300 files and uploading one at a time.

It's free but I am going to send Alex $20, it saved me hours. :)

Could you point me to the file splitter you used? I used to use the rfsplitter found in the knowledge base, but is no longer works on my PC :( don't know why. Update (March 27, 2003) For those who really don't want to do it on their own, here is a small tool for splitting database dumps. I have not ...

Yeah, I noticed Subsim was unresponsive at times the past couple of days. I try to visit frequently because it's the place for SH3 talk and the like. There's a lot of good information in that thread. It's helped mine out when I started having issues. Our users have posted a total of 525980 articles...

Big phpBB Forum owners, need your expertise!

I hope I can get some feedback before this topic is locked. If you have a phpBB forum that attracts 50~150 members at a time , with db size 400 MB or more , please help me out. What type of server is your forum on (CPU and RAM)? Is it dedicated or shared hosting? How many websites are also on the fo...

Why does the search not work here?

I can't even search to find out why the search doesn't work. All I get is a white page. Searching for tips on reducing the wasteful search tables, they store every word posted.
