In PhpBb I would like to know if there is a possibility of creating a forum which can only be seen by members of a certain group only
For example a forum called family which only people who have been included in the group called "family members" can see and enter.
Set forum permssions to "PRIVATE".
Then go to permissions (for the usergroup) and press allow access or something like that.
Uninstall it and install the Announces Suite instead (found on phpBB.com, remember to do the fix too (it's on the first post of the modification page).
I cant even reach my admin panel
How do i do that?
/admin/mods/<whatever the global announce mod folder is>/backups.
Tthere's lots of .php.txt files there. Rename the extention to .php and upload them as accordingly to their respective folders.
No use. The whole thing went bust.
I even loaded a backup I had taken of the files.
Still no avail
I replaced all the backups but still it did not work(i did it right by the way)
So I replaced the forum folders with a backup i took just before installing easy mod.
Still I get the same error.
I'll try to take a look at it and solve the problem. However, the forum seems to be gone now.
I uploaded a backup of your scorpio_forum database as scorpio_forum2, but it's the same thing. It seems like the backup you used overwrote the settings and other data of the phpbb database and that's why it is giving an error.
I hope you do have another complete backup of your database. Otherwise, I can restore the scorpio_phpbb database, but that might have been another forum.
The current database (scorpio_forum) seems to lack most important data like topics, posts, private messages and config settings.
