I run my own set of boards at my personal website, and in the last two days I have had a real surge of spammers hit me.
While in the process of banning all of the IP addresses of these spammers, I accidentally copied and pasted my own (real stupid, huh?) IP address and banned myself.
Now, I have gone into my phpbb3 MySQL database and deleted the entry for my own IP address in the phpbb_banlist table, but the board is still showing me as banned due to being a known spammer. Can someone please tell me what I have missed here? I thought if that entry was removed, that it would remove the ban, but I guess not. Is the _banlist table integrated/cross indexed with another table which also needs to be modified?
Anyone got a solution or workaround on how I can re-access my board other than re-installation or logging in from another computer?
Thanks in advance......
