Changing Forum Statistics

Post by Firejack »

Last night I reinstalled phpBB 2.0.6 onto my website and imported my old forum database. Now when I log into the Administration Panal the forum statistics are all incorrect. Start date for forum is last night for example.
Where do I change the values for the forum statistics to relate to the actual start date etc?

(Sorry if this has been asked before. I tried using "Search" but it just keeps giving an Internal 500 error :roll: )

Thanks,

Andrew.

You need a database administration tool, e.g. www.phpmyadmin.net (might be pre-installed by your hoster; if you install it yourself, make sure to restrict access to the phpmyadmin directory)

phpmyadmin --> phpbb_config --> browse --> edit --> board_startdate
if you want to change the registration date of the admin account:
phpmyamdin -->phpbb_users --> browse --> edit your account --> user_regdate

that number is the number of seconds since the 1st january, 1970.

backup your database before changing anything.
