  • phpBB import prob.

    I'm having a issue when I'm importing my board from phpbb2. Everything seems to work right, but it makes all the users Forums Admins instead of just registed users. Is there a way I can fix this?

    Its putting them into the adminstrator usergroup?

              This will be tricky but you can move all Admins to the Registered groiup by running this query:

              UPDATE user SET usergroupid=2 WHERE usergroupid=6;

              The tricky part is that this will move you and any other legitimate Admins as well. You can then use phpMyAdmin to manually edit the usergroupid for your account in the user table back to '6' to restore your Admin status.

                  I would do it in the SQL tab in phpMyAdmin.

                      Can confirm this was a bug, sorted now, all the users now go into a customer user group to be sorted out from there.
