|HELP - I'm under attack!|
My BBS has been taken over
| 2:22 pm on May 5, 2005 (gmt 0)|
Some jokers have taken over my phpbbs - they have messed around emailing al the members, deleted all the existing admins and are just wrecking it.
Can anyone suggest how I can stop them (without just wiping it?)
I'm sick to death!

Password protect the directory your web forum is in ... Cpanel can do it very quickly and easily for you. Then upgrade to the latest version of Phpbb....

I quess I'll have to find someone to repair the damage. now.

What a great example of quick help at WebmasterWorld!
Thanks, nuts&bolts, and good luck reconstructing your forum, greybeard. Hope your backup isn't too old...
Greybeard, when you come up for air you might check the community building library [webmasterworld.com] for discussions of how to secure phpBB as well as plenty of tips on growing and managing forums.
