Upgraded to phpbb 2.0.6

Post by FuguTabetai »

Upgraded to phpbb2.0.6 from phpbb2.0.4. Shouldn't really notice any differences, except now you can upload your own avatars, and some security fixes.

Upgraded phpbb2 to 2.0.11 to avoid a newly release phpbb exploit. Also turned on the visual confimation option, in case any bots want to try to register and post.

Upgraded phpbb some more.

Also, did anyone notice? For about twenty minutes, all of mangatranslation.com was deleted. Yes, through an extreme form of operator error (idiocy) I deleted the entire website. I was able to restore from a backup from Dec. 8th, but since nothing had changed since then, no harm no foul.

The forum's database is on a separate mount point, so things were ok.

Man, who needs hackers when I can accidentally destroy the entire website myself. Time to start making more frequent backups.
