Deleted users by phpMyAdmin (wrong). Now how to fix?

Back in this thread ... At minimum, even when a user has NOT been activated, there are 3 tables to clean properly. They are the "user_group" and "groups" tables, aside the "users" table. Even when an activated member has no topics or posts, he might of created "pm" or "topic watch" activites and so ...

Thanks Marshall for this guide. Should be a sticky SPAM removal tools Admin Toolkit - Allows you to mass delete users. Users should never be deleted straight from the users table. OK, that's what I have been doing. What trouble am I in for? I always made sure there were no posts (or their posts were...

I think this is a hack (email.php)

We just started having the same problem today and I've never seen it before. Our forum has been around since 2003 and we upgraded from phpbb 2.0.11 to 2.0.17 about 3 or 4 months ago. I read the kb article and my host says everything is fine. I responded about this in another thread ( http://www.php...

Re: Compromised with and resolved

Then I found lot of articles here in this forum and modified some code here there to block some sort of hits but practically they are all useless, by the way I am using version 2.0.6. I did lot of customization to add some beneficial features to the my forum users, hence I can’t really upgrade this...

I guess my hosting outfit doesn't have the default configuration on their (Red Hat) proftpd installation, as dot files show up OK. I'll have to see tonight how my Mandrake boxes at home respond to ftp requests.

As far as I know, every common operating system comes with a command line FTP program. Well at least windows and linux do. I assume MacOS X does, too since it is Unix. The windows and linux ftp programs see all the files just fine. Just run "ls -la" without the quotes after logging in to see all the...

Belive it or not, I think this may be due to putting a hard return at line 2 or somewhere.

Remove a blank line, resave and see if it works.

I am also under attack. But .htaccess seems to be working. Same here. Must be a worldwide thing. My .htaccess is performing like a champ and my site is still fast; no "guests" shown logging in. My site is low traffic to begin with and the attacks aren't showing much of a blip in bandwidth usage. Th...

I realized today that my forum was being hit by these stupid worms (far too many "guests" than usual, and then looking at the "latest visitors" stats in CPanel, I realized that they were all trying to use the "highlight" exploit). I wasn't worried about getting trashed anymore, because I had upgrad...

OK, only read about half the 46 pages or so (still took all day). I upgraded to 2.0.11 last December when word got out about Santy and thought I had escaped problems. (BTW, running many mods, including the portal mod, but the patch files ran just about flawlessly for the upgrade). Apparently there w...

Well, actually, it isn't working quite as well as I had hoped. What happens is that someone responds to a very old topic. Since I am ordering viewforum by topic_time, then these recent replies don't show up at the top of the list. Not a huge problem, but still not quite right. It works well if peopl...

I figure I can do a kludge to get the index to display correctly by manually editing the *_last_post_id fields in the *_topics and *_forums tables to the actual most recent post. When other posts come in, new *_last_post_id's will be entered in and all will be well in the world. This worked. While ...
