Re: [RFC] Error Diagnostic System (EDS)

Yes. If this RFC were to be approved, we would not recommend even using the Python method unless no other methods work. However if you were to have no other way of accessing your forum, wouldn't you want to install Python and at least try instead of refusing? Plus python is a very useful tool. It ha...

Re: [RFC] Built In phpBB3.x FTP Client (phpFTP)

Requiring SSL would mean that most boards couldn't use the feature. I do agree that it would be something nice to have for some board owners, but the security consequences for the server are too great to include this in with the default package of phpBB. For me personally, it's easier to use an FTP...

Re: [RFC] Error Diagnostic System (EDS)

You install a 2.x version of Python on your desktop. That is all you need to run Python scripts. You do not need python installed on your servers for it to work. Python works as a crawler, so once you enter the username and password of an admin account into a python script it can receive the cookies...

Re: [RFC] Built In phpBB3.x FTP Client (phpFTP)

...you would have FileZilla available in your ACP, instead of having to go open it through your desktop and enter your FTP Server Information each time... Ehm, so you want to save name and password of FTP access in plain text to database? Are you serious? That is not what this quotation is explaini...

Re: [RFC] Error Diagnostic System (EDS)

Then you install python. You do not need to install python into your servers. You need a good copy of python 2.x on your own computer to run a python script, you need to retrieve the admins cookies and you would need the admins user name and password.

Re: [RFC] Built In phpBB3.x FTP Client (phpFTP)

But there is not a full built in FTP client in the ACP. I am talking about having a full built in web FTP client into the ACP, for instance you would have FileZilla available in your ACP, instead of having to go open it through your desktop and enter your FTP Server Information each time. The genera...

Re: [RFC] Error Diagnostic System (EDS)

I see all of your points. But the reason for a Python script is because EDS will be a standard in all phpBB3 forums, so if you were to use a free host and did not have access to the database, you could use a python script to run EDS. It is the only way I can think of to install and access something ...

Re: [RFC] Don't show banned members birthdays

I am going with bug. Why would you even want to have the ability to show users birthdays.

Re: [RFC] Don't show banned members birthdays

Wouldn't this be better of as a mod. I mean it probably is very achievable, and is not such a big deal if it shows banned users birthdays.

Plus you can always remove the banned users birthday, or keep changing it before it does hit their birthday so they never get to celebrate it. :twisted:

Re: [RFC] Built In phpBB3.x FTP Client (phpFTP)

I suppose extra security measures would be taken. Something that may work just as good: Perhaps a PIN would be issued to each user who successfully can integrate their account with the FTP server. This PIN would come in a text file, which is in a locked archive, which requires a password generated t...
