  • protect forum from rebuilding elsewhere


    just this simple question,
    lets say I am the ONLY administrator of my board, no moderator nor supermoderator having access to admincp or whatsoever...

    now, other people have access to the database in mysql, where they can make a backup of the forum...

    are they able to take that backup and install it on a different server and restore the complete forum without me? or my administrator account?

    Yes, if they have access to the database they can restore an exact duplicate of your forums and pretty much do anything they want with it.
