I think its been hacked!
lets hope google dont pay a visit!
as it will update with all that text
I'm off to do a forum backup!
Just had a look on archive.org, looks like there was a busy forum once, but nothing since feb 04
It seems this guy has been attacking alot of hosting/domain forums
Like you say, well worth a backup
I have backed up the DB from the PHPBB Admin options,
I assume that is enough to restore the Forum from should I need to?
Do us all a favour and migrate to VBulletin PLEASE. It's significantly better and if you do it whilst the forum is relatively small, the job will probably be easier.
Could you summarise the benefits of VB over PHPBB for me please?
It would have to be good for us to spend $160 to get it.
Having used both, VBulletin is nicer to work with from a user perspective and it's also got better admin options. It has more features, cleaner code and more mods. I also prefer the user interface. If you're not a member of the two main domain name discussion forums that use it (dnforum and domainstate) then it's worth trying those out. I cannot really explain it any further than suggesting you try it. I run a small, private forum elsewhere and I even stumped up the money for a lifetime licence rather than install phpBB or Invision. Most of the major forums on the net use it. Since it's licenced rather than free, bugs are usually fixed within days.
Believe me, it's a nicer and much more usable forum interface than phpBB.
http://www.vbulletin.com/admindemo.php - try this out.
I'll donate 50% of the lifetime licence.
For instance, I actually prefer the "soft" look and simplicity of phpbb.
Is phpbb considered more hackable than vbulletin?
Separate names with a comma.
