Re: Forum hanging up

I used to run check, optimize and repair tables from right within phpMyAdmin. You can always give that a shot and see if it helps. For 2x I had the maintenance mod, I don't remember for sure but I thought phpBB3 has the maintenance mod built into the ACP.

phpBB upgrades do not like modded forums. I see Lanik is using phpBB Styles and that may have something to do with it.

Most likely because of the bogus email address used to sign up. They bounce back to my mailbox and I may have set something to automatically deactivate the accounts or I manually did it through a cleanup... Please try to correct the email address so this doesn't happen again. Thanks :)
