Yes, I did this and all pages (+ cache) are removed now from Google index.

But, of course, I'd like to "fix" the security hole.

Any ideas, anyone?

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

Did you convert from phpBB2 to phpBB3? Because I did, and I saw someone mentioning "bad conversions", so perhaps that's how it happened. Yes, I converted from phpbb2 (it was hosted at iphpbb.com, and I payed for exporting the database), but don't know, if there were error messages / warni...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

If a bot is deactivated, it cannot do anything. Are you sure you deactivated it? Yes, very sure! And beside that: there is only ONE group which has read-access, and this group has 15 members only and none of them is a bot ;-) As I described, the Googlebot was not logged in as Googlebot, but as John...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

Disable them. Well, they were deactivated, when the problem occurred. But Google became a regular user, so none of the bot rules fit, I think. Again, if it isn't clear: there is only one group, which has read/post access to the forum. And in this group are only hand chosen registered users. And now...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

Well, hm, what should I do now? How can I prevent this? I want a closed forum, not a publicly available forum, for those who use the "correct" user-agent (I mean ... is this not critical?!)

Could I delete all bots via ACP?

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

Have yo cleared your cache lately? I cleared it after changing the password for John Doe (because the googlebot was still logged in as John Doe, although the password was changed) You mean, I should clear it again and check, if the user ids change? (err... could they?) Clearing the forum cache at A...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

The bots should be activated in order to have complete control. I assigned all bots the role "no access". So I should activate all bots now, too? I have no idea what you have done to cause the other issue but will suggest checking ALL permissions using the permission mask option. I checke...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

Instead of "deactivated" you should set the bot group to no access. In forum permissions, the bot group had "no role assigned" (I changed it now to "no access", but 'no role assigned' means the same, doesn't it?). However, I mean ACP -> System -> Spiders/Robots. All th...

Re: Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

What should I do now? Anything to log, before it might get deleted?

Is this a problem with PHPBB (assigning wrong account to googlebot?) or with Google? (stealing/borrowing username/password?)

Googlebot is logged in as registered user!

I run a PHPBB3 board, where guests are not allowed to see anything (only registered users are allowed to read/post, and only admins can register/activate new accounts). Now, suddenly many threads were indexed at Google. Wow, what happened? Guests are not allowed to access the content, and all bots a...

Re: MyBB: Convert "manually" (only users and topics)

Because I'm not into this stuff at all, it's good to know, that it seems to be possible. Thanks for your answer. Best you can do is doing everything by hand, so register the user by hand, change in phpmyadmin the registration date, post the posts by hand, and change in all correct tables the dates. ...

MyBB: Convert "manually" (only users and topics)

I have a small MyBB forum -- only a handful of users, < 20 topics, < 50 entries. I want to convert only the registered users and the topics/entries. All the forums / forum structure and all the board settings / styles are unimportant. I want to start "fresh", but not with 0 users and 0 ent...

Run this SQL. So this SQL is for phpBB 3 database, correct? I changed table prefix to "k1", so I copied following SQL to "phpMyAdmin" --> "SQL": update k1_posts set post_text = replace (post_text, '[quote=%:', '[quote="%":') But phpMyAdmin tells me, that no d...
