Banned anonymous!!! now Admin is banned

Postby Belki » Sat Mar 15, 2014 2:36 pm

I made the mistake of banning a spammer called anonymous I now know it is bad to ban this name as it's the account used by everyone who isn't logged in and now everyone is banned on my forum even me Admin. I don't know how to get my forum back. Please someone help me. Someone has told me I need to ask my hosts to fix this because I don't have access to the database to clear it. They told me I'm using phpBB-seo. Has anyone got a contact email for please.

I've never used this forum host. Do you have FTP access? If so, you can write a short php script to undo the damage. Or use the phpBB support toolkit. ... &t=1303655
