Hello phpBB community,
I've tried to find an answer, and found few, but none-of them was 100%-related to the exact state I'm interested in.
I'm managing a phpBB 3.1.x forum with a lot of forums, users and posts. I'm interested in configuring the forum as full read-only, but, still allow users to login and read there private messages. What's the best way to achieve this? the permissions model, along the years, contains user-level, group-level and forum-level permissions.
Any lead will be great to get. Will it be easier to use the UI? direct DB access? is there a solution of making the DB connection as read-only with the information of what tables still need read/write permissions to allow sessions, login, private messages, etc.? any hint will be great!
Big (!) thanks in-advance!
