  • How to turn off forum?

    I have gotten some server errors and I am waiting for my Host to look into it. In the mean time, I would like to turn off my boards, but the errors are preventing me from accessing the control panel. Is there a query I can run in phpMyAdmin to shut the board off for now?

    Run these queries to turn your forums off:

    UPDATE datastore SET data=REPLACE(data,'"bbactive";s:1:"1"','"bbactive";s:1:"0"') WHERE title='options';

    UPDATE setting SET value=0 WHERE varname='bbactive';
