A clean installation is not ideal for testing the "who was here" part i mean. This part needs a really active forum with active users to show, is it working or not.
Yes i know i was not really helpfully, sorry. I have my own (dozens) projects and also lot of own tools written in several languages and i am working in a big translation project for a computer game so my time is really limited.
In Germany static IPs for the internet users are very uncommon. So the most users have dynamic IPs. Static IPs are common for companys.
And Activity Stats
Additional user groups:
1 Group (Beta Tester) for access to 1 internal forum.
1 Group (Developer) for access to 2 internal forums.
1 Group for local moderators for access to 2 internal moderator forums.
1 Group with no special rights, simply a standard user group.
I have now reactivated your Ext and deleted the working files. So the Ext works now with default settings. I leave this alone for several days then we will see. After this i can support you with the server logs. I think you mean the access logs? Hint: i have no direct access to the server (Apache), i have only domain access.
May the backup be with you. Always.
