Ban users before the log in!

I've had a few incidents where banned users accessed the forums as guests and then emailed us by saying a lot of crap about our posts. Can I make the index.php page to check the IPs before the log in process and redirect them to another page? I want to prevent certain guests from viewing the forum p...

Critical Error: Maximum Connections reached

I 've noticed that when too many users are accessing our forum, the forum goes down and a phpBB Critical Error appears. phpMyAdmin reports "Too many connections"... How can I control the maximum connections? In other words, is this due to a crap server or because of phpBB (2.0.4 here)? Can the issue...

Well, I checked my files and everything seems to be in place. This is weird. I may try and do everything from scatch. It may be the case that our db went bananas when we upgraded from phpBB 1.4.0 to phpBB 2.0.4 As for my last question: do you mean to delete the whole mod? That is not use the new fou...

Well it took me 6 mins to install but this was due to the slow connection at home! Anyway, I did have a problem: The topics that were coming up (the 5 topics listed) were the very first topics in the forum (dated at 2001) and not the last 5 (dated 27 June 2003)... The link to the most recent topics ...

Thanks. I will try the second option (looks just fine to me) and I'll let you know (I am not very keen with php, I am more of a JSP and ASP man)... Now I see all these people saying that they installed the mod in 2-4 mins and I feel bad :( !!!

Last 10 topics posted in forums

Hi there,

Users of the ko-gathering forums have requested an option to see the last 10 topics posted in the forums. We are using phpbb 2.0.4 and mySQL. Is something like that viable?

Any help will be apprecieated.

Thanks in advance

Backing up Database

As an admin, you get the option to Back up the database. How does this option actually works? Does it make a backup file of the database that you can save to your HD and upload? Some info here would be great. What is the best way to backup your database (we are using mySQL)? We prefer to get the dat...

Well, I don't think I get it. The settings are Name: 1000+ Set as special rank: NO No of Posts: 1000 So I assume that this works as follows: If a user has 1000+ posts then the rank appears under the username. If he has less than 1000 posts then nothing appears. However this is not set as Special ran...

phpBB 2.0.4 Ranking works strange!!!

Well, it seems to me that Ranking works very strange. For a start even though they were 3 ranks (one for admins, one for 1000+ posts, one for 2000+) only the first was set up to work as special rank. The other two were saved with a 'No' option regarding being a special rank. Unfortunately, you could...
