Old phpBB ver - Registering incomplete

Post by BrianNeil » Fri Jan 25, 2019 11:58 pm


Just been asked to work on an old site. Which is great as I have a lot to learn.

By old I mean: Powered by phpBB © 2000, 2002, 2005, 2007 phpBB Group

Problem: New users register and nothing further happens. They can not log on, admins can not find them.

When I go through that database files, I can find bits and pieces of user info, but not the full file, nothing with the 50,000+ records I should see.

What I see are nearly empty:

Any clues to what I am missing? Where can I look for more information?

Thank you,

If its as old as you suspect we will not be able to offer support other than to upgrade the board to the latest version (and of course help fix any errors to allow that conversion. (note the copyright line on this board is the same as the one you are working on)

Please fill out the Support Request Template and post it back here to enable us to assist you better. Once that has been done this topic will be moved to Support

You are looking at at least three separate sets of tables. The cms ones are not phpBB tables. The two users tables are from two installations. Please post the contents of your config.php file, without password.
