Dating net phpbb
I made the mistake of changing my php BB table prefix and in the end I went back to my forum database, manually changed all the table names (which is very tedious) and then edited the /php BB/file so that the table prefix was set to phpbb instead of what I'd had previously.
I have nearly 1000 Users on my Forum, and i want that only Users are able to edit a page.
If you run with this tweak a while, you will have most active users covered and that saves you the trouble of implementing the complex algorithm.
The not so active users can just request a new password when they can’t login, or you could all give them a new password and mail it to them (you can select them on the last login date stored in the Phpbb database).
It does this by searching URLs that contain string "viewtopic.php".
In order to get different results with different searches, the worm uses a random string in the search as well. Then, if login is sucessful, it deletes the PHPBBHash field, and creates the current systems hash values.
