I was testing the forum in a free hosting and I remembered that some people usually insert advertising in the pages. This is fine, but if later I want to move to one payment? I will have the modifications in my database or files of the hosting.
If it's free host you better find out what is required to obtain an export of the database. Typically they remove the ability to export from the ACP. If
they will give you a copy it's usually for some ridiculous cost. Furthermore if the forum becomes popular or whatever changing it to it's own domain has it's own issues.
For the files you can check with the checksum and it is very simple.
You would not use files provided by them even if they provided them. Download them from phpbb.com.
For the database How is it checked if the hosting staff or anyone else has inserted malicious code?
phpBB is going to expect that certain values are in certain tables/columns. While it may be possible to manipulate that is unlikely without working within the limits of phpBB. Off the top of my head one thing I can think of is creating a BBcode and then utilizing it in posts.
How do I know what was changed in the database on localhost compared to the hosting database? This comparison should not include users or recent posts.
Google is your friend, search for "mysql compare tables"
