Deleting a ton of spam users

Post by elizdilo » Wed Feb 20, 2008 1:33 am

I am having a heck of a time with this. I tried the toolkit and the Admin Userlist and I can't figure out how to get either of them to work. I read through the instructions and they still are not working. The version I have is 2.0.21. Someone please help me!!

You'll need to be a bit more descriptive about what happened when you tried to use them to get any help.
For the Admin Userlist MOD, please ask by replying to the release topic for that MOD.

There is no release topic here for the Admin Toolkit, and the support board for the Toolkit is still offline. If you post your problems with the Toolkit here, we may be able to help, although normally there is no MOD support offered here.

did you actually install either of them?

the toolkit needs no editing of any files, it is just a upload of one file.

the userlist MOD only makes edits to two files and uploads a few more.

When I tried the toolkit it said I need a MySQL database. I then tried the Admin Userlist and changed the two files that needed changed and uploaded those. I then went to the admin section of my forum and there was nothing that was different and I still don't know how to delete users.

you most likely do have a mysql database or your board would not be working.

that statement in the toolkit simply means what it says, it only works with mysql databases. If you have mssql or something else, then it won't work.

as for the userlist MOD, if you read all of the instructions, you will see that you have to upload ( copy ) all of the included files before you even start the edits to the two files mentioned.
