Forum Problems

Post by Renier » Tue Dec 06, 2005 11:48 am

Sorry, seems I broke the forum a bit when trying to make some changes.

phpBB is not really supported on PHP5, so that is why I get the problems.

Hopefully it's working again now.

True, but the forum is now running on new hardware. (Xeon with 4GB RAM)

When I installed the new server I installed Ubuntu instead of Mandrake that it was running previously. Ubuntu is running nicely now.

Ubuntu came with PHP5. I see phpBB 2.0.18 now supports PHP5.

All these hacks just didn't work too well. I've now done a proper upgrade to phpBB 2.0.18

Renier, if you "Enable Visual Confirmation" in these forums' Configuration screen, it will help prevent spambots from auto-registering and posting messages like the one in this other thread:
