A tool for phpbb forum administrators
10 months ago, I started hosting a friend’s phpbb forum. Of course, I’m the administrator of the technical side of the forum
6 months ago, in order to try to protect the forum from spammers' assaults, I manually updated the bans list from the Stop Forum Spam website, which provides a SQL file for phpbb forums.
However, this is repetitive and annoying, and today I decided to automate this task. So a little script is born.
I also decided to publish it under a free software licence (the GNU GPL), maybe some other admins may use this script.
This program will not work on web-hosting which do not propose a remote shell access.
This is the 0.1 version of this program, for now he’s unable to connect to a remote MySQL server (this feature will be included in the 0.2 version)
The installation howto is written in the README file included in the archive.
If you have any idea, feel free to contact me using the contact form.
