This is the full 3.3.10 package which can be used for new installations. It contains the entire phpBB source code and the British English language pack. See the link below to download additional language packs.Thank you for using phpBB!
I want to make a download of a forum I moderate, before it closes for good. There's some useful info on it I want to save for myself and I don't want to export the data to another webserver, I just want the pages. Mind you, I'm a user at the forum, not the admin. Now, I googled this and found it can be easily done with wget:How can I download an entire (active) phpbb forum?
I experimented with this, but I can only achieve downloading the publicly visible sections, not the sections you have to log in for. I tried to achieve this by using a Firefox plugin to make a cookies.txt (while my session is logged into the forum) and add --load-cookies file cookies.txt to the command, but still I only get the publicly visible sections.
phpBB staff removed the links to the malicious files as soon as they were discovered. They said the download links pointed off-site to malicious versions of the original phpBB files that also contained additional "malicious code."
MODs are code modifications created by the phpBB community, often used to extend the functionality of or change the display of phpBB. The term is capitalized to distinguish code modifications from forum moderators, the latter of which is often abbreviated as "mods". Modifications referred to in this manner are not authored by the phpBB developers and do not enjoy the same level of support as unmodified official code. The phpBB Extensions Team (formerly known as the phpBB MOD Team), headed by David Colón (known as DavidIQ in the community), accepts modifications from community sources for validation, and modifications that meet the Extensions Team's standards are made available for download from the phpBB Customisations Database. Other sites also provide phpBB2 and phpBB3 modifications for download. Some of the sites have their own standards, which they validate to, and other sites do not do any validation, however, the phpBB teams do not offer support for boards using MODs downloaded from sites other than phpBB.com. Documentation for phpBB3 MODding is provided by the Extensions Team. MODs are not accepted for the 3.1.x line of phpBB since Extensions have taken their place from that version forward.
AutoMOD is a tool developed by the phpBB Extensions Team that parses and automatically installs phpBB3 MODs distributed in the MODX format. Users simply have to upload the contents of a MOD download to their phpBB source directory and run AutoMOD, which will parse the MOD instructions and make the necessary file changes. Depending on the server configurations, it will either automatically merge the changes into place using FTP, or will create a compressed archive of the changed files for the user to copy into place. AutoMOD is also used by the MOD Team members during validation to ensure that the MODX files are valid and the MOD can be successfully installed on a vanilla phpBB installation.
The Unified MOD Installation Library is a library designed to simplify the installation and uninstallation of the database side of MODs. It is designed to be useful for configuring the forum for the new MOD, performing database actions such as adding and removing tables and columns and purging the forum's cache. UMIL is GPL licensed and the latest version is 1.0.5. It can be downloaded from the UMIL page. To create a UMI-file automatically, a MOD author can use the Unified MOD Installation File creation tool.
At any point of time, you can change the style back to default prosilver style by making it default and active. If you have deleted the default prosilve style, download the prosilver special edition for version 3.2.1 from the official site. Or you can download the subsilver2 for version 3.1x or prosilver for version 3.2.x here. Follow the same steps as explained above to install and activate the default style
Unlike other common open-source software, the phpBB forum is not available to download or install using the Ubuntu package repositories. Hence, we have to download its files manually from its official website.
The function then returns the filename, which consists of an upload salt, the md5 hash of the $filename, which is evil.jpg and the extension of the $file_name, which is .jpg. Since $file_name is under control of the attacker, the only part of the filename that is unknown is the plupload_salt. This salt is a cryptographically secure, random hash that is unique to each phpBB3 board and is generated when the target board was installed. However, the hash is stored in the database in the phpbb_config table. Administrators with founder privileges can download MySQL database backups from within the admin control panel. This means an attacker can simply download a backup and extract the plupload_salt from it. This allows the attacker to predict the full path of the Phar file on the server.
To create and view categories, you will need to create at least one forum inside the new category and set the correct permissions. Deeper info is available from the official phpBB user guide (you can download it from phpBB documentation page). In this paragraph, I will shortly show you how to create a generic category.
I see here that it says 2.1.2 has been released, but i dont see it updated on the download page, i need this update cause i need to IMPORT my phpBB forum and 2.1 had errors when trying to import User Passwords
The download link is for the 2.1 branch. If you follow the link it will take you to the plugin page where you can download 2.1.2. You can also install it directly through WordPress I find much easier. 2b1af7f3a8
