Can't Delete Topic

Post by willthing »

We have a topic that is causing problems. Whenever someone tries to access it, the page times out. It's the only topic on the entire site that does it and we want to remove that one topic entirely (or at the least delete the users post).

Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks,
Will

Unfortunately not. It's on a secured internal server. Apparantly a user made a post to it in early November and since then, when accessing that topic, it just spins and finally returns a blank page.

How about use phpmyadmin to check, repair, and optimize your tables? You can also delete it that way if you have to (but may be tedious to do so -- must search out all posts in that thread and delete the title).

I've ran a check, analyize, repair on the phpbb_topics table and i'm still unable to view that post. How would I manually disable / remove that post through the phpmyadmin?
