Let's say someone has gotten admin access to a phpbb 2.0.11 board. How would they give one of their regular usernames read access to a forum that is currently restricted to mods? Obviously, adding a user to the mods group isn't going to be exactly hidden. I thought about making another group for that user, but that would show up in the group list.

Is there a way to enable read access for a regular user to a forum that only admins and mods can view, without making it blatantly obvious?

Thanks in advance. John

well if the board is hacked, it'll probably be taking down and a new version 'phpbb 2.0.19' put up, and a backup of the forums. so you're best off making two or three or maybe more users, and giving them each admin access before they take the board down. once the phpbb 2.0.19 is up, you should still have admin access...

'should' although i'm not certain, as i've never bothered with doing that. i've just fucked it once and then left it. mainly to make people update their software, which is what happens.

I just want to give read access to one forum, without having that user show up in the Admins or Mods list. That way they won't see another Admin online.

A board with 7000 posts and 5500 users - how long do you think it would take to back that up (8800 mbits down cable connection, but of course through anon proxy)? And I read that if u sign on as Admin and start the backup, u can log off and it will continue, right? And if another Admin signed on they would not see that a backup was in progress? Anyone know?

Cheers, John
