MOD Title: BB3 Emergency Toolkit
MOD Author: sTraTo (StarTrekGuide) - A.K.A. Desdenova

MOD Description: Ever been locked out of your own board?
Just moved hosts, and now your cookie information and script path is incorrect?
With this PHP script, you can easily alter certain things in the database on an emergency basis.
As I build the three scripts, more modes are added, and so are more possibilities!
With a very user-friendly interface, it's better than digging around in phpMyAdmin!

It is recommended, that when you download, CHMOD it so that none can access it, since it could introduce some slight security risks while accessible (even though the query script, which is the only thing that isn't secured VIA phpBB's authorizations, is using a hashed password).
Currently the script uses phpBB's password protection to prevent unauthorized use. It will not use phpBB's auth system outside of the installer so that it can be used in case staying logged in is not possible.

MOD Development status:
GUI Script: 90% (Shell)
--GUI script still needs the How-to-guide page and Known Bugs page done.
Query Script: 100% (Shell)
Install Script: 100% (Totally Complete!)
Implementation of Functions for Query script: 25%

MOD Version: 0.3.5
MOD Status: ALPHA [Private]

Tested on phpBB version: 3.0.0 - 3.0.1
Released: 06 May 2008

Installation Time: ~ 1 Minutes

Could I signup to alpha?

Could this be used to regain access to your board in the event that you accedently crashed the modules in ACP, or stuff like that? With a script to put them back?

I'd be glad to test this modification out as I got a few boards that I can test it on.

The script is intended for bad cookie settings, the wrong script path, and things in the config table of the database that would otherwise prevent login to the ACP (or entire board) to fix the settings.

For something like the ACP modules, I believe EXreaction had been working on something like that.

I'll PM you two the location of the Development board in a moment, I'm just finishing up the code for 0.3.5 and will upload it there shortly, which has some major improvements regarding modes available and code optimizations to drop the script size.
