From now on, I'm gonna put my PHPbb system on a stand-alone computer with no network address no floppy and no modem. People who want to post messages will need to physically co...

I may seem a bit niave here, but what exactly are you referring to? Can you provide some examples of where they didn't respond? Can you provide examples of where we were forced to use a 3rd party patch? I haven't seen any of this yet. Remember, security testing and patching is one of the most diffic...

User Self Reactivate

First: I don't know if "reactivate" is actually a word. Second: I have a user who hasn't posted in some time and who became inactive. She sent me an email asking if I could reactive her. I did through the ACP. Is there a way (or mod) to allow users to get the activation email resent to themselves? I...

(I searched and found this to be very common. I checked both /tmp and /images/avatars and found both to be set to 666. I tried uploading ...

I just backed up using the PHPBB ACP backup utility then opened a command processor (I am on NT 5.0). I changed to the MySQL directory on my C drive: CD MYSQL I then ran th...
