In this forum, how do you delete an account?

Hello, I have a phpBB forum just like this one. There are a few places on the web as well as in the faq that point to how to delete your account from your profile, there is may be a delete account link at the bottom of your profile page. But you are supposed to get there from some users and groups t...

phpBB 3, emails, and links in those emails

Went from 2.x to 3.x and all is good, nice update. There are two spots in the admin in which I can enter in a email address. This seems to always be a issue with phpBB, and was hoping this would be resolved. As far as I can tell, any *nix system out there, no matter what you set the Return-Path: to,...

Correctly directing where emails bounce to, and why....

Every time I update phpBB, i have to go into the email include file and change one line, if I do not, invalid email addresses do not go to the board admin email address. In many cases, I do not see most of you noticing this, as they end up at postmaster@domain.com for the forums, but for those of us...

Thanks everyone for the help, I found the sendmail path thing did not work, I also found in my research I am not at all alone in this issue. I discovered a fix by adding an additional header to the mail() command in emailer.php What is confusing is that the from: and Return-Path: are both set in the...

Sorry for my ignorance, what is ACP?

Why can phpBB not add in a return-path header so we can define the bounce location without external SMTP?

Can someone tell me appropriate file to look for the code to add in the header?

What defines the bounce address?

I am confused about something, I have many people using a server of mine for hosting stuff. I have a few phpBB installs as well. Whenever a email that phpBB tries to send is not delivered and bounces, I get it. I have the admin email address set to the owners of the respective forums, yet I get the ...

I am just wondering, assuming the email link has not been clicked on, is there only one INSERT in the user table, would I not be able to simply delete from usertable where user_active != '1' and accomplish more or less the same as these mods are doing?

purse inactive users

I am sure this is covered here, I tried to search it out but came up with nothing.

We get a lot of bounce emails from invalid email addresses, these accounts never get activated because they never get the email to click on the link. Is there a way to clean these out of the database?

Unfortunately, your script makes some assumptions about the log file format that might not be true... in my case, the IP is the FIRST field in the string, not the second. The result of the script, as written, is "-"... :) Sorry about that, yes, this is more for a virtual host log format, but changi...

script to get unique IP's of all Sanity.A worms for blocking

The below code will help you get a clean block list on who has the sanity worm and is hitting you, you can then adapt to put that IP in a block list. #!/bin/bash # this is the log file with the messy poo poo in it FILE="/var/log/httpd/access_log" # not sure this is the best way to find the bad lines...

I dont know what it is, but a lot of people can not seem to keep a emai address working. On a daily basis I am flooded with the bounce emails from those accounts that the email can not be delivered to. In some cases, it is new users and the confirm email, which they just entered in the wrong email a...
