  • [Any Version] How to Fix the Accidental Banning of All IPs

    If you have accidentally banned all IPs, then to fix this you will need to remove all banned IPs from the database. To do this run this query:

    UPDATE setting SET value ='' WHERE varname = 'banip'

    Then upload tools.php to the admincp directory (available in the 'do_not_upload' folder of the vB zip file) and rebuild the datastore.
